One of the most important things you can do for your child is to make sure they attend school regularly and on time. This starts from the very first time your child attends an education setting e.g. nursery or foundation stage.

There is a link between good school attendance and high level attainment. Starting good attendance and punctuality habits early will help your child’s social development. Making and keeping friendships is easier if your child is there on time, every day.

Our whole school attendance target is 96.5%. We display our actual attendance percentage in the school reception area for parents, and on the year 3 corridor for our children.

The local authority website has some useful information about school attendance. Please follow the link for more information:

By following the link for our attendance policy, you will be able to view our attendance monitoring process and all of the Birley Primary Academy acknowledge and celebrate good school attendance:
