Welcome to the information page on Attendance and Punctuality.
At The Queenswell Federation we are committed to raising attendance levels.
Latest Guide for Parents from the Barnet Education Welfare Team, October 2019:
Making sure your child attends school and is punctual, is the first step you can take to help your child’s education, helping to maximise their learning.
It is essential that children attend school and maintain a pattern of good attendance throughout their school career. The link between attendance and attainment in school is clear. It is widely recognised that good attendance at school is a key factor in raising attainment and for improving future life opportunities for young people.
Every day really does matter, if your child misses school, they are missing out on learning. Help your child to achieve and become the best they can be – make sure they come to school every day and make sure they arrive on time!
Below is our ATTENDANCE & PUNCTUALITY POLICY which tells you what we are doing on areas of Attendance and Punctuality and what we expect from you as Parents/Carers. Please take time to read this.
We reward classes with good attendance and punctuality, weekly the class with the best attendance will get extra playtime! At the end of every month we will publish here the class with the best Attendance and Punctuality and they will receive a treat for the class!
If your child misses school without good reason and their attendance becomes a problem, you can expect to be contacted by the Education Welfare Officer (EWO), who visits our school every term to check attendance and punctuality.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child’s attendance, please contact Mrs Helen Stainton, Attendance Officer for both Infant and Junior schools, on 0208 445 0524 ext. 107, or email email@example.com
Please call or leave any absence messages before 8.30 on the absence line 0208 445 0524.
