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.
