Ryedene Primary and Nursery School seeks to ensure that all pupils receive a full-time education which maximises opportunities for each pupil to achieve their best educational outcomes.
The school will strive to provide a welcoming, caring environment whereby each member of the school community feels welcome and safe.
All school staff will work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends school regularly and punctually.
The school will establish an effective system of incentives and rewards which acknowledges the efforts of pupils and their families to improve their attendance and time-keeping, and will challenge the behaviour of those families who give low priority to attendance and punctuality.
Good attendance means that children usually make good, consistent progress in their school work. We rely on our partnership with parents to ensure that this is achieved.
Parents must contact the school if their child is absent by phoning the school office on the first day of absence and subsequent days by 9.00 a.m.
The school must be informed of any planned absence in advance.
