Attendance and Absence Reporting

Croxby Primary puts a high importance on attendance and punctuality, we expect pupils to aim for 100% attendance. However, there may be times when your child has to miss school because they are too ill to attend. Therefore, we realistically expect a minimum attendance of 96%.

Parents are responsible for making sure children regularly attend school. If you fail to do so you are committing an offence and the Local Authority (LA) may take legal action against you. 

We are responsible by law for reporting poor attendance to the Education Welfare Service (EWS). The school will contact you and work with you if your child is regularly absent from school.

If your child feels “under the weather” please provide appropriate relief/medication and send them to school whenever possible. We expect your child to attend if they have a minor illness that can be managed in school.

Please try to avoid arranging doctors, dentists and similar appointments during school hours. Where this is not possible, let us know as soon as you can and provide supporting evidence of appointments.
