The governors and staff at Alderman’s Green Primary School are united in their belief that regular school attendance is the key to enabling children to make the most of the educational opportunities available to them.
This will help them to become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community.
Alderman’s Green Primary School values all pupils. As set out in our policy, we will work with families to identify the barriers that may stop or hinder our children from achieving good levels of attendance at school. Alderman’s Green Primary School will always strive to offer support and challenge to children and families in the school’s pursuit to resolve difficulties and promote good levels of attendance.
The Attendance Officer works to improve the attendance and punctuality at school and may contact you if low attendance is a cause for concern & is affecting your child's learning. School will work with you in supporting getting things back on track and will support your family with Attendance plans & Early Help support if needed. School work closely with the Local Authority Attendance Officer & if needed they will support school in working with you as a family.
It is really important that parents contact school on the first day of absence on 02476 688918 by 8.45am to report your child's absence from school. You will have an option of leaving a message or holding to speak to a member of the school office.
At Alderman's Green we take pride in recognising our children's good attendance & achievements. The Attendance Officer will celebrate these achievements throughout the school year, recognising individual & whole class successes.
Our whole school target is to aim for an attendance above 96%. We hope all adults & children can work together to help us achieve this.
