At Leigh Church of England Academy, we place great importance on regular attendance, as we know that missing education has a detrimental impact on the progress that children make. Regular attendance is also a vital part of a child's academic and social success.
Leigh Church of England Academy seeks to ensure that all of its pupils have access to a full-time education provision, that enables them to make the most of opportunities and provides a pathway to fulfilling their educational potential.
Being on time is important to your child's education. If a child is persistently late, they miss the start of lessons, which may have a negative impact on their learning, confidence and self-esteem. Lateness disrupts your child, their class and the staff working with them.
Being 5 minutes late every day will result in your child losing around three learning days a year. Being 15 minutes late every day equates to having two complete weeks off a year. Being 30 minutes late daily equates to losing nineteen learning days a year.
Staff work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends school regularly and punctually. We offer advice and support if you are experiencing any issues around attendance and punctuality.
Attend today, achieve tomorrow!
