Wrenbury Primary School has set itself an ambitious attendance target of 97% or above this academic year 2016-17 as we know that attending school every day is crucial for learning, social skills and personal responsibility.
In 2015-16, we had an overall attendance of 95.6%. Compared to other schools in Cheshire East, our school attendance was OUTSTANDING! and we were given a GREEN rating.
The school must comply with Cheshire East Council's policy for good practice in managing attendance.
We monitor attendance and inform parents by letter, where their child's attendance falls below 90% across a half term; if attendance falls below 90%, the Education Welfare Officer will become involved. The government has raised the bar on attendance and any child who has attendance below 90% will be considered to be persistently absent. . The government does not expect school to authorise absence for holidays in term time as this is detrimental to your child's education. If you are experiencing any problems and you feel school is able to help — please call into the school office to see Mrs Cador and Mrs Rowlands.
Please read the Attendance Policy.
The school must be told by a parent/guardian of the reason for a child's absence or lateness. When parents do not notify the school of the reason for the child's absence, it must be deemed to be unauthorised (truancy) and must be recorded as such. Parents are asked to notify the school on the first day of absence before 9.30am.
