Good attendance and puntuality at school are important if teaching and learning time is to be maximised and pupils are to get the most they can out of their time at school. Here at Rokeby Park Primary School we are working extremely hard to ensure attendance and punctuality is good and that pupils understand the importance of attending school and being punctual. We believe that having a positive attitude towards attendance and puncuality is an important life skill.
This year our attendance target is 96.1%. Each term all pupils with 100% attendance are entered into the attendance prize draw with the chance of winning a fantastic prize. At the end of the academic year all children who have acheived 100% attendance are awarded for this fantastic achievement.
Thanks go to all our families for ensuring that our pupils attend school every day and for not taking children out of school for holidays and appointments. We are not able to give permission for any holidays taken during term time.
If your child is ill and absent from school please inform us as soon as possible of the reasons for the absence. We have to keep careful records of attendance and explain any absence. Please be aware that if your child is absent for medical reasons, we will require evidence of the illness/absence according to LA and school policy (see our attendance policy on our policies page).
