Attendance

Attendance

At Compass School we believe that high attendance and achievement go hand in hand.  Pupils with a high level of school attendance are more likely to benefit from education, achieve better examination results and are less likely to miss out on the numerous opportunities that are on offer at school.

Compass School will reward good and improving attendance weekly, half termly and termly.

We are keen to work in partnership with parents and carers to improve and support attendance and punctuality.

In order to maintain high attendance of 95%+

  • Pupils must not be absent from school unless they are seriously ill
  • In cases of prolonged illness or disability a medical certificate from the doctor is required
  • It is expected that dental and medical appointments will take place in out of school hours
  • Parents and carers must contact the school on each day of a child’s absence with a reason for the absence
