At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School we recognise that attending school regularly has a positive impact on learning, progress and therefore the best life chances for children. We will
encourage good attendance for all pupils, by offering an environment in which pupils feel valued and part of the school community.
DCSF guidance states that all schools should have effective systems and procedures for encouraging regular school attendance and investigating the underlying causes of poor
attendance which should be set out in an attendance policy. These systems should be reviewed regularly and modified where necessary to reflect the circumstances of the school.
