School Attendance

attendance new

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)

  • Providing contact details of an external local provider to help with work commitments

  • Providing contact details of a local child minder to help with work commitments

  • Referral to School Health where on going illness is a recurring issue

  • To discuss possible external agencies and the help they can offer

  • Support with transport (If eligible)

Please speak to the Headteacher in the strictest confidence.
