What can parents do?

To ensure your child has good attendance you can: 
  • Ensure that they only miss school if they are too unwell to come
  • Do not take family holidays in term time 
  • Book medical appointments outside of school hours 
  • Ensure that children have enough sleep
  • Provide a varied and healthy diet
  • Insist on good hygiene routines 
  • Have high expectations 
  • Get in touch with the school if you are struggling with transport or home routines
  • Make sure you have identified a support network to support with dropping and collecting your children in case you can't (we can also support with this)
