Attendance and Welfare

School Attendance

Parents and carers have a legal duty to ensure that their children of compulsory school age receive a suitable education. It is also vital that they encourage their child’s regular and punctual attendance at school.

At Anerley Street we believe that for children to achieve their full potential they need to attend school regularly. Children should be at school on time every day. If your child is absent, parents should contact school on the first day of the child's absence to notify them of the reason and when they will return to school (if known).


Wherever possible can medical/dental and other appointments be arranged out of school hours. Where this is not possible, please can parents contact school and send in evidence of appointments.


At school we have a number of staff who are first aider. If a student is unwell, parents will be contacted for permission to send the child home. In more serious cases, or where an injury requires further investigation, the first aider will ask parents to take the child to hospital. In an emergency, the first aider will send directly for an ambulance and contact parents immediately.
