At Widford School we encourage excellent attendance in order to ensure that all children are able to take the fullest advantage of the learning experiences available to them and make good academic progress.  Our target for attendance is 96% or better for each child. 

Attendance and Punctuality Facts

Missing school regularly can really add up:

  • Attending 4½ days a week = 90% attendance = 4 weeks missed per year
  • Attending 4 days a week = 80% attendance = more than half a term missed per year.
  • An average attendance of 80% or less across a child’s school career adds up to missing a whole 2 years from school.

Being late for school reduces learning time:

  • If your child is 5 minutes late every day they will miss three days of learning each year.
  • If your child is 15 minutes late every day they will miss 2 weeks of learning each year.

We really appreciate the support of parents in helping your child to attend school regularly and on time.

Please see our attendance policy for more information on how we promote attendance at Widford School.
