For children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend school regularly and on time every day unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. Research shows that there is a close link between attendance at school and a child’s achievement.
Establishing good habits from the start will help your child to settle more quickly and build good habits for life. Pupils who arrive late at school may miss learning and important information given out at the start of the school day.
