Attendance and Punctuality

At Roe Lee Park Primary school we recognise that regular attendance at school is very important to your child’s education.  Children who attend school every day achieve better and enjoy school and learning more.  Our aim is to support you in ensuring your child’s good attendance. 


Our school attendance target is a minimum of 97%

We monitor the attendance of each child every month.  If your child’s attendance falls below 90% we will write to you to tell you that we are monitoring your child’s attendance.  Please do not be offended by this.  School can support on these matters and your child's education is very important to us.  If your child’s attendance falls below 85% we will invite you to speak to Mr Geldard or Miss Butterworth to discuss ways in which we can work with you to improve your child’s attendance.  We believe your child's education is a partnership between home and school and together we can make sure your child has excellent attendance.


We celebrate good attendance with termly awards for children who achieve 100% attendance and weekly awards for classes with excellent attendance.  At the end of the year all children with excellent attendance will be recognised.


Be on time at five to nine

Roe Lee Park School actively discourages late arrival at school. Pupils can be severely disadvantaged if they arrive late and it is very disruptive for the other pupils in the class.  Children should be on the playground at 8:45am and the bell for the registration is  prompt at 8:55am.  A letter will be sent home if pupils are late repeatedly.  If you are having problems getting your child to school on time, please contact school to make an appointment to see Mr Geldard or Miss Butterworth.  School may be able to help.
