Our target for attendance is 96%
White Meadows Primary Academy recognises that good attendance and punctuality are central to raising standards and pupil attainment.
For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and be at school, on time, every day the school is open, unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
Ensuring a child’s regular attendance at school is a parental responsibility and permitting absence from school without a good reason creates an offence in law and may result in prosecution.
In the case of exceptional circumstances, permission must be granted by the Head of School. Parents/carers must complete a ‘Leave of Absence in Term Time’ application which needs to be submitted at least four weeks before the intended date of absence.
