At St. Edward’s Catholic Primary School we are committed to the continuous raising of achievement of all our pupils and believe that regular attendance is fundamental to a successful, fulfilling school experience and ensuring that each and every child reaches their potential. We regularly celebrate good attendance with our pupils and work in partnership with parents to supports parents in meeting their legal obligation of ensuring their child attends school regularly and punctually. 


We use the Local Authority (LA) Attendance and Penalty Noticing Policy as a basis for our procedures and policy. However, the LA policy is changing with effect from 1st January 2016 and these changes will have an impact on the way we deal with absences during term time.
