STUDENT ATTENDANCE

Raise your child’s attendance – Raise their chances!

At Rednock School excellent attendance and punctuality is our aim for every student.  Full attendance maximises learning opportunities and parents / carers have a vital role in promoting good attitudes towards attendance.  We ask for support from parents / carers to ensure that their children are present at every opportunity, to arrive on time and to avoid allowing children to stay at home unnecessarily, or taking them out of school without authorisation.  Evidence shows that students who attend school regularly make better progress both academically and socially.  We monitor a student’s attendance closely and will follow up unexplained absences with parents / carers, by text, telephone and / or by letter.  Where a student’s attendance record reaches a concerning level, we will contact parents / carers to discuss ways in which the school can support you and your child.

At Rednock School we expect all students to attend every day that the school is open unless a reason that is acceptable to the school is given and we are able to authorise the absence.  Every lesson counts and it is this commitment to learning that will have a positive effect on students’ examinations and their futures.
