Is Your Child at School Today?
School Attendance Information for Parents/Guardians
To provide full-time education for your child, give them the best possible start in life. As a parent, you should also make sure that your child is punctual and attends school regularly so that they can make the most of the opportunities available for them. The law actually says that parents must ensure that their child regularly attends the school where he/she is registered.
What you can do to help
- Make sure your child goes to school on time. This encourages the habit of timekeeping and reduces any possible classroom disruption. If your child arrives after the register has closed without a good reason, this will be recorded as an ‘unauthorised’ absence for that session.
- If your child has to miss school it is vital that you let the school know why, preferably on the first morning of the absence. (Your child’s school will have an attendance policy explaining how this should be done.)
- If you think that your child is having difficulties in attending school you should contact the school. It is better to do this sooner rather than later, as most problems can be dealt with very quickly.
If your child is absent and the school does not receive an explanation from you or considers the explanation unsatisfactory, it will record your child’s absence as ‘unauthorised’, that is, as truancy.
Most absences for acceptable reasons will be authorised by your child’s school:
- Unavoidable medical or dental appointments (if possible, arrange these for after school or during school holidays)
- An interview with a prospective employer or college
- Exceptional family circumstances, such as bereavement
- Days of religious observance.
Your child’s school will not authorise absence for the following reasons:
- Shopping during school hours
- Day trips
- Holidays which have not been agreed
- Looking after brothers or sisters or ill relatives.
