SCHOOL ATTENDANCE MATTERS!
At Cherry Tree Academy, we firmly believe that regular attendance is vitally important to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children. Regular attendance means your child can make the most of their education, thus improving their chances in adult life.
Being in school will also help your child’s social skills, such as making and keeping friendships. A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work.
To ensure your child gets the best possible start to their education, we ask that you support regular school attendance and punctuality.
If you require any support regarding your child’s attendance, then please contact a member of our Attendance Team:
- Mrs Storey (Deputy Headteacher)
- Mrs Wiggins (Pastoral Manager)
- Mrs Sherrard (Waterton Academy Trust Education Welfare Officer)
A new guide for parents on improving school attendance
Members of the Attendance Action Alliance have worked with the Department for Education to develop this short guide, which helps parents understand how they can work with their school and local authority to support their children to attend school and get the right support.
