Moments Matter, Attendance Counts. 

Winnington Park Primary School and Nursery recognises the importance of good attendance and the impact it has on children’s progress, attainment, enjoyment of learning and relationships within school. Good attendance helps a child to realise their potential and ensure they are motivated, confident and enjoy a diverse range of curricular opportunities and experiences.

Our school policy and prospectus promote good attendance, which is recognised and rewarded as an achievement. The school monitors attendance and ensures quick and early intervention if a problem is identified. We recognise that whole school preventative and proactive approaches are key to promoting children wellbeing and attendance.

All staff will encourage good attendance and will liaise with home and partner agencies if this is appropriate. Good attendance will be seen as an achievement in its own right and recognised as such by the school.

The table below demonstrates the impact of absence and is a useful reference point.

To ensure children's safety, children are only allowed to go home with adults who we have been notified about. If your child is going to go home with a different adult, please let us know.
