Monitoring Attendance

All children’s attendance figures will be monitored weekly

• Attendance staff will meet weekly to analyse attendance patterns

• Individual and whole school attendance, punctuality figures discussed and ways forward suggested.

• Children causing concern will be discussed along with actions taken and progress towards targets.

• All parents receive a letter if attendance falls below 91%.

• Children with attendance less than 91% are identified as causing concern

• Children who are regularly late are also identified as causing concern

Procedures for when attendance is causing concern

• If at the attendance meeting the child’s attendance/punctuality continues to cause concern. Parents/carers are invited to attend an attendance/punctuality meeting in school where an EHA (Early Help Assessment) will be offered.

School follows the EH (Early Help) pathway for attendance

• The pupil’s attendance/punctuality will be monitored until it is no longer a concern

• If a child’s absence remains a cause of concern and after intervention by the school which will include unauthorised absences, then a referral to the Local Authority will be made.

• If parents/carers fail to attend meetings to discuss attendance issues and attendance or punctuality does not improve within a specific time a Penalty Notice could be served.

• Further absence or lateness could result in further court action and a custodial sentence
