Every Day Matters - Every Second Counts!

If your child's attendance drops below 96% then their learning will be affected.

Being in school and having the best attendance possible underpins all the many benefits 
of school for your child, such as their learning, wellbeing and wider development.

We encourage all children to have excellent attendance at Willow Wood

Regular school attendance brings enormous benefits to individual pupils, their families, schools and the community as a whole. Without regular attendance, levels of attainment suffer and opportunities are missed to obtain maximum benefit from education.

Persistent absence and lateness will affect a child’s achievement and progress in school. Comprehensive research shows that there is a direct link between a child’s level of school attendance and their level of school attainment.

As a parent it is your legal responsibility to ensure your child receives a suitable full-time education. It is your responsibility that your child attends school each day and is on time.

Children with attendance less than 96% are identified as a concern if absences are unauthorised.
