It is your responsibility to ensure that your child attends school regularly. However, please contact us if you find that there are any issues with attendance. If your child is trying to avoid school we need to work together to resolve the situation. Often some simple actions can ensure that your child is back on track. Good attendance is essential for high achievement.
