As a parent/carer it is your responsibility to ensure that a child of compulsory school age attends school both regularly and punctually. The local authority has a duty to ensure that all parents/carers fulfil this responsibility.
The DFE deems satisfactory attendance as 96.1% or above.
At Huncoat, our attendance target is 96.3%.
We celebrate the class with the highest attendance and best punctuality each Friday in assembly.
You should always contact the school first to discuss your concerns. They should be able to offer support and advice.
If school staff are unable to resolve the issues they may suggest you contact the Pupil Attendance Support Team for advice and guidance.
At Huncoat Primary School, our attendance manager is Mrs L Alldritt, you are welcome to speak to her about any attendance issues or concerns you may have.
A range of measures will be used to enforce attendance legislation where parents do no fulfil their duty to ensure that their children attend school regularly. These include:
Remember school gives your child a wide range of opportunities and experiences both academic and social allowing them to develop their interests and achieve their full potential.
