Attendance

Attendance Matters!

There are 190 days in a school year.  This means there are 175 days in the year available to use for holidays.  Every school day counts!  Children of school-age who are registered at a school must, by law, attend that school regularly.  When a child is absent from school, attainment is affected.  He or she misses the lessons provided and is also less prepared for the lessons after his or her return to school.

Absence does have a negative effect on social relationships and friendships.
