Attendance

 

Regular school attendance is vital to ensure that children can maximise their education opportunities.

 

Good school habits are best started early. Children learn from those around them and you as parents/carers set the standards and expectations for your child. By showing your child the importance of attending school every day it not only helps them to settle quickly when starting school but helps them to keep and maintain friendships and enjoy school.

 

Guidance for Parents

Morven Park Primary School is committed to providing the best possible education for your child. We believe that children can only benefit from this through regular school attendance. We will, therefore, strive to achieve the maximum possible attendance for all pupils and will make sure that any problems are identified and resolved. This will be achieved by school staff, pupils, parents, carers and external agencies all working together as a team.

 

How you can help to give your child a good education

  • Ensure your child attends school regularly and that they arrive on time.

  • Contact the school office as early as possible on the first morning of your child’s absence. The school telephone number is (01623) 459395.
  • Arrange medical appointments outside of school time. We accept that for hospital appointments this may not be possible.
  • Take family holidays outside of term time, ie, there are 13 weeks each year which are outside term time.

  • Help your child to prepare for the school day by ensuring they have done their homework and they have everything they need for the day ahead, reading journal, PE kit etc.
