Attendance

As we now move away from strict Covid guidance and return to ‘normal’, we are in a position to return to robust monitoring and tracking of attendance and punctuality.

 

Our target for attendance is 95%, this is as a whole school, for each class and for individual pupils. We are in the process of raising the profile of attendance and punctuality across school using a range of methods and we regularly promote the importance of good attendance during lessons and assemblies. 

Regular attendance at school is vital to help children get the best possible start in life. At Thorpe we aim for an environment which enables and encourages all members of the community to strive for excellence and we regularly promote the importance of good attendance during lessons and assemblies. 

Children who frequently miss school often fall behind and there is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving good results.

 

Your Responsibilities as a Parent 

All children aged between 5 and 16 are required by law to receive an education, and it is the duty of parents and carers to ensure that they are supported to do so.

Children sometimes have to miss school because of illness or if they have long term medical issues. If this is the case, parents should contact school the same day to let them know the reason that their child is not in school on 0113 5217040
