Adlington St. Paul’s Primary School is committed to providing a full and high quality education to all pupils and embraces the concept of equal opportunities for all.
We will endeavour to provide an environment where all pupils feel valued and welcome.
This is a successful school and every child plays their part in making it so. We aim for an environment which enables and encourages all pupils to achieve their potential and aspire to excellence.
For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and every child should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless they have an unavoidable reason to be absent. Any absence affects the pattern of a child’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning.
Absence or late arrival also disrupts teaching routines and so may affect the learning of others in the same class.
Government research shows a direct link between attendance and attainment and good attenders also make better progress socially, learn to work with others, and are better prepared for the transition to secondary school and, eventually, higher education, training and employment.
It is very important therefore that you make sure that your child attends regularly and this policy sets out how together we will achieve this.
Our attendance target this year is 97%, but all pupils should strive to achieve 100% attendance if they can.
If you have any questions about your child's attendance or if you require any support or guidance, please contact the school office. We are always here to help and support our families.
