Attendance

Attendance really does matter... Regular school attendance is important, not just because the law requires it. Students who attend school on a regular basis take an important step towards reaching their full potential. They are exposed to opportunities to develop new skills and learn new things. Similarly, the more time students spend around their peers, whether in lessons or in unstructured contexts, the more likely they are to develop long-lasting friendships with others; they are more likely to feel included and can develop their social skills, while building confidence and self-esteem. Regrettably, those students who regularly fail to attend school fall behind with their learning. However, it is more likely to impact negatively on their personal and social development, which can have long-term effects on their progression into adulthood.

The school is working with Cardiff Council to improve school attendance across the city to ensure all students have the best chance of achieving. Miss Parry, Deputy Head, has strategic overview of attendance and, together with other identified staff, implements a range of interventions for those very few students who have below expected attendance. Fixed Penalty Notices for non-school attendance have now been re-instated by Welsh Government following the pandemic and the school will utilise these in the case of unauthorised absence and/or an unauthorised holiday. 

Please ensure that your child attends every day and is on time. If your child is absent for any reason, please contact the school to explain the absence. Our school has a School Attendance Officer and an allocated Education Welfare Officer who will help and support you with any difficulties you may have with your child’s attendance at school. In the first instance, please contact Mrs Angel, Attendance Officer (Monday to Thursday) or Mrs O'Reilly, Attendance Officer (Friday).

So, it’s time to get attendance back on track. For more information visit www.cardiff.gov.uk/schoolattendance

In addition to support available from the School’s Attendance Officer and the Education Welfare Service, Cardiff Family Advice and Support offers a range of information, advice and assistance for children, young people and their families on a range of issues relating to family life which may be impacting on their school attendance.
