At Gorton Primary School we are committed to raising the attainment of the pupils at our school. To ensure all pupils achieve their potential it is vital that they attend school daily. This attendance page will give you all the information you might need about attendance at Gorton primary School. If you wish to talk to someone about attendance please come into the school office to make an appointment with our Attendance Officer: Mrs Spink.
At Gorton Primary school we are committed to improving the attendance of pupils at our school. As a result of this we have designed a range of incentives to encourage pupils into school on time every day.
Below is a range of letters and leaflets for parents to read with information about attendance.
If your child is 30 minutes late every day they miss 2 and a half hours a week. That works out at 4 days a term and 12 days a year!
If your child is between 5 and 16 years old and is a registered pupil at school, it is your legal responsibility to make sure they attend regularly.
If your child misses 1 day of school a week they miss 7 and a half weeks a year. This is more than half a terms learning!
