Attendance News


Attendance is taken very seriously at Burley Woodhead Primary School and we are working hard to help students achieve 100% attendance. We believe that;

  • Regular attendance promotes the effective and continuous learning for all children. 
  • Regular attendance promotes positive friendships and well-being.
  • Regular attendance establishes life long traits of good attendance and punctuality.

 We all have a shared responsibility to ensure that each child does not get left behind due to persistent absence.

As a school we seek to:

  • Promote good attendance and reduce absence, including persistent absence;
  • Ensure every pupil has access to full-time education to which they are entitled; and,
  • act early in order to address patterns of absence.

As parents and carers it is expected that:

  • all children of compulsory school age, who are registered at school will attend regularly.

As pupils it is expected that:

  • All children will be punctual to their lessons.

 Our current attendance data is below

Our attendance is usually above the national average, and we work hard to ensure that this remains the case.  Any issues are monitored and addressed quickly.
