Child Attendance

Oliver Tomkins School recognises that good attendance is central to raising standards and pupil attainment.  Our school ethos is to:

  • Support pupils and their parents/carers in our establishment of the highest possible level of attendance and punctuality
  • Promote pupil’s welfare and safeguarding
  • Ensure every pupil has access to a full time education which they are entitled to
  • Ensure that pupils succeed and realise their full potential whilst at school
  • Make parents/carers aware of their legal responsibilities.



School education lays the vital foundations of a pupil’s life.  Research clearly demonstrates the link between regular attendance and educational progress and attainment.  Parents, carers and school staff should work in partnership in making education a success and ensuring that all pupils have a full and equal access to all that the school has to offer.  As a school we will encourage parents/carers to ensure that their child achieves maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent this are identified and acted on promptly.  As parents it is their responsibility that their child arrives at school and returns home safely.

The Department of Education requires us to monitor all absences.  Pupils are expected to be in on time for registration at 8:30 from Reception to year 6.

Please notify the School if your child is going to be late or is unable to attend before the school day starts.
