Bleasdale is a successful school, and your child plays their part in making it so. We aim for an environment which enables and encourages all members of our school community to inspire, learn, enjoy and achieve. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education, it is vital that they attend school regularly and your child should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.

Any absence affects the pattern of a child’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning.

It is very important therefore that you make sure that your child attends regularly.

Parent’s must:

  • Ensure children attend school regularly and punctually
  • Contact school on 1st day of absence using the methods stated earlier
  • Avoid holidays in term time wherever possible and apply in advance in writing
  • Attendance at meetings in school
  • Participation in the home-school agreement and Common Assessment Framework, and co-operate in support and interventions offered by school or other agencies

Pupils must:

  • Acknowledge behaviour needed out of school e.g. early bedtime;
  • Attend school/registration punctually
  • Speak to parents/teacher if issues arise that may have an effect on their school attendance.
  • Co-operate and participate in interventions and support offered by the school or other agencies.
