Here at Braunstone Frith Primary School we firmly believe that EVERY DAY COUNTS !

 Miss school and you miss out We are committed to working together to improve attendance

We want to see all our pupils with 96.2% attendance or above.

There is a clear link between attendance and achievement.  Whenever a child misses school they miss out on important learning. This time can never be caught up. Regular attendance is the most important factor in a child reaching their full potential. 90% attendance actually means that you have been away from school for half a day every week! If you have 90% attendance for a whole year that means that you have had nearly 4 whole weeks off of school in a year! That is 19 days or 80 lessons!

Remember, your child needs to be on time as well as in school.

What we promise:

  • We will do our best to contact you on the first day of absence by telephone.
  • We will contact you if we have any concerns over attendance and punctuality.
  • We will also contact you if we have not been given a reason for absence.
  • We will reward good and improving attendance.  We give awards to pupils with 100% attendance.
  • We give weekly class attendance awards.
  • We will support you in promoting good attendance and punctuality.
  • We will be there for you if you contact us about issues that may be impacting on your child’s attendance. We will do our best to support you and find a solution to the problem.
  • The Educational Welfare Officer will get involved with persistent absentees.
