The Governing Body and Headteacher of Brockley Primary School are committed to improving outcomes for all children. Attendance at school and being on time everyday has a huge impact on a child’s learning and helps to ensure personal success.
Whilst the Governing Body and Headteacher will do everything they can to support families struggling with attendance and lateness it must also be understood that as part of the monitoring procedures parents and carers may receive a sternly worded letter informing them of their child’s late and/or absent rate. This letter is a statutory requirement.
The letter will invite you to attend a meeting with the Headteacher to discuss any problems you may be experiencing and share ideas in which we can work together to achieve an acceptable level of attendance.
Staff are here to help you and may suggest:
Joining Breakfast Club (Available daily 8am until 8:40am)
