At Drapers Mills Primary Academy we expect good attendance and punctuality. Our aim is for 100% attendance and punctuality.
. Good Attendance gives children every opportunity to influence their future quality of life and reach their full potential.
. Attendance is closely linked to achievement. The better your child's attendance, the better their grades are!
. Good attendance helps children in developing friendships.
. Punctuality is important. It is habit forming and shows commitment to the importance of working and learning.
A true partnership between home and school is vital to good attendance and we appreciate your support
Mary Brown is in Year 1
Her attendance rate is always around 90%.
Her mum thinks this is pretty good!
So, what does an attendance rate of 90% look like?
90% attendance means that she is absent for the equivalent of one half-day every week.
Absent half a day every week!
In Year 1 Mary's attendance rate means that she has missed the equivalent of four whole weeks of lessons in the school year.
How much education has your child missed?
