Attendance & Punctuality

Adswood Primary School promotes the view that regular attendance is important to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for all of our children and that absence from school creates a barrier to learning. We feel that the whole school community takes responsibility for attendance.



If absence is unavoidable due to a child being ill, parents must contact school to explain their child’s absence. If no contact has been made by registration, a member of staff will contact you to ensure child is safe. Please consult guidance on infection control in schools to determine if your child should be kept away from school.

If a childs attendance falls below 90% during a half term, parents / carers will receive a letter following school policy. A referral will be made to the Education Welfare Officer if the attendance below 90% persists.

School starts at 8.40 - 9am and children are expected to arrive on time. 

For further information please refer to the schools Attendance Policy.
