At Marshfield Primary outstanding attendance and punctuality is our aim for every one of our pupils. Excellent attendance maximises the learning opportunities and parents/carers have a vital role in promoting positive attitudes to good attendance. Evidence shows that pupils who attend school regularly make better progress both academically and in friendships with their peers.

The school attendance target is 96% which is the minimum we expect for all our pupils. Every lesson counts, and it is this commitment to learning that will have a positive impact on your child’s attainment and progress. The table below shows the impact that missing just a few days of school can have over the course of an academic year.

We ask for support from parents/carers to ensure their child:
● Is present at every opportunity and avoids staying at home or taking excess time off for appointments unnecessarily.
● Arrives at school on time.

Attendance = Achievement!
