The school attendance team actively manages the attendance of all students at both group and individual level and our intervention strategies are shared with students and their parents and carers so that students understand and are able to develop the resilience needed to succeed at school.

The importance of sustained attendance at school is shared regularly with students and they understand the link between attainment and attendance. Students are rewarded for good attendance at the end of each half-term and take pride in their outstanding levels of attendance.
