Staff and Governors at Lower Fields Primary Academy are making every effort to improve attendance. We are aiming to achieve over 95% attendance in school over the year. In order to achieve this, your support and co-operation are very important.

We understand there are many reasons for children to miss school and would want to work with you to avoid any absences which are unnecessary. Children should only miss school if they themselves are too ill to attend.

Young children thrive on routine, therefore we would ask you to support your child’s learning by ensuring regular and punctual attendance each day. Arriving late for school also has a negative impact on your child’s attendance.

You can read our attendance policy, as well as the Local Authority’s penalty notice protocol in the documents below.
