Missing a day here or there may not seem like much but absences add up and can impact your child’s learning more than you think. When your child misses one day a week over a year, that’s 40 days of school, 8 weeks of lessons and 2.5 years over their school life lost.
And strive to achieve success.
And build a sense of belonging at school.
That will serve them through their learning journey and beyond.
Students are expected to have above a 95% school attendance rate, because days missed is years lost. That’s why making sure your child comes to school every single day (unless genuinely sick) is so important.
And remember, holidays should only be booked during school breaks. Students should be at school every day during school term, right from the first day until the last.
We know that the last couple of years have been tough, and we will continue to prioritise student’s health and wellbeing by listening to health advice, providing support and maintaining a safe learning environment.
