Regular attendance at school is vital to help children achieve and get the best possible start in life. Kingsway Primary School places huge importance on attendance and punctuality. We recognise that children who frequently miss school often fall behind. We believe there is a strong link between achieving well in school and achieving good results.
Our attendance slogan is 'Going for Gold'. We have introduced a colour coded system to help parents and children easily identify when their attendance is good, or when valuable learning time is being lost. The colour coded system is used throughout the school; it is displayed in our playground, in our classrooms, on any attendance related correspondence you receive from us, and also on our website.
Our colour coded system is explained further below. Our aim is to raise everyone's awareness of how well we are attending school - on both an individual and whole school basis.
If your child needs to be absent from school for any reason, school should be notified as early as possible on the first morning of absence. Please call the school on 01405 763716 and selction Option 2 to report an absence on our message service.
Evidence must be provided for doctors/dentist/optician/hospital appointments. Failure to provide evidence may result in your child being recorded as an unauthorised absence for the whole session.
The following attachment was produced by the Education Welfare Service. 'Guidance for Parents - Medical Appointments and Illness'. The leaflet was designed to help parents make the right choices and decide on the correct action to take when their child is ill. Please click on the PDF link below
