Attendance at Wormley 

Expectations

Wormley Primary School aims for every pupil to attend 100% to maximise their learning potential. As a minimum every pupil is expected to attend at least 96% of the school year to ensure that all students are able to take the fullest advantage of the learning experiences available to them and make good academic progress.

Children are expected to arrive at school by 8:55am ready to learn with everything they need for the day.

Under Section 199 of the 1993 Education Act, a pupil is required to attend regularly at the school where he/she is a registered pupil. The Department for Education therefore monitors absence closely via the pupil level school census which is submitted every year.

A child may be considered at risk of harm if they do not attend school regularly. Poor attendance may be viewed as a safeguarding matter (see Child protection policy).
