Attendance

Blue Skies Federation aims to work in partnership with pupils and parents, particularly in our shared responsibility for regular attendance at school. We recognise the need to promote and maintain the regular attendance of all our pupils, which is highlighted in the Children Act 1989.

To ensure the greatest opportunity for each pupil to learn and develop their potential, we seek to ensure all our pupils receive a full-time education. Our school aims to provide a happy and secure environment, in which every member of the school community feels welcome and cared for. We strive to work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends school regularly and punctually. We aim to acknowledge both good attendance and pupil’s efforts to improve their attendance and time-keeping, through incentives and rewards. We seek to communicate effectively with pupils, parents/carers and appropriate agencies to provide mutual information, advice and support.
