Attendance at Victoria Road

Attendance Matters

At Victoria Road Primary School, we recognise the clear link between consistent attendance and academic achievement.  The whole school community has a responsibility for promoting excellent attendance: parents, governors and all school staff.


Our Aims

  • To maximise the attendance of pupils.
  • To provide an environment which encourages regular attendance and makes attendance and punctuality a priority for those associated with the school.
  • Monitor and support children whose attendance is a cause for concern and work in partnership with parents and carers to resolve any difficulties.
  • Analyse attendance data regularly for future policy and practise.
  • Work closely and make full use of the support from the wider community this includes the Education Welfare Service and multi-agency teams.

What can we do?

Creating a whole school ethos

Each week, the newsletter includes each class attendance scores. This is also announced in Fridays celebration assembly using the Attendance Thermometer on display in the hall.
