Ways to ensure good attendance Check your child’s attendance on the Parent Portal regularly. Where possible make appointments outside of school time. Please inform school if there is an ongoing medical condition. Encourage your child to “give school a go”. Let us know if you are concerned there is an underlying reason your child doesn’t want to come to school. Support is available. Holidays in term time are unauthorised absences.
