At Bolton by Bowland Church of England Primary School we recognise that attending school regularly has a positive impact on learning, progress and therefore the best outcomes for children. We will encourage good attendance for all pupils, by offering an environment in which pupils feel safe, valued and part of the school community.
Department for Education (DfE) guidance states that all schools should have effective systems and procedures for encouraging regular school attendance and investigating the underlying causes of poor attendance which should be set out in an attendance policy. These systems will be reviewed regularly and modified where necessary to reflect the circumstances of the school.
For more information regarding leaves of absence, authorised and unauthorised attendance, roles and responsibilities and policies and procedures please contact the Mrs Awre in the school office on 01200 447632
