Attendance and Absence

At Manley Park we want all our pupils to succeed, to be happy and to feel part of our school community.  The best way to help us achieve this is to make sure your child attends school every day.  Poor attendance can have a lasting impact on your child’s progress, as absence from school disrupts their learning and their friendships.  Remember that every moment of your child’s education is important, and the more your child is absent the more opportunities and experiences they miss out on.  

To minimise disruption to your child’s education please try to make medical appointments outside of school hours or during holidays, or if appointments are only available during the school day try to make them in the afternoons.

We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to get young children to school, but the law says that your child must come to school every day unless they are very sick.

If you are having any difficulties please come and talk to us, and we’ll do everything we can to help.

If your child is sick and cannot attend school please contact us before school starts to report their absence.

Please see our Attendance Policy below for more information.
