Risby CEVC Primary School is committed to providing an education of the highest quality for all its pupils and recognises that this can only be achieved by supporting and promoting excellent school attendance for all. There is clear evidence of a link between attendance at school and high levels of attainment. Only by attending school on every day the school is open will children and young people be able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them.
We need your support in ensuring that holidays are not taken in school time, so that your child has the very best opportunity to succeed.
Our attendance figure for 2016/17 was 96%. Our target for 2017/18 is 97%.
Half termly attendance can be seen on our monthly newsletter and is also displayed in our foyer. Individual attendance figures will be discussed with parents if they are a cause for concern and, if required, we may ask the Educational Welfare Officer to further investigate reasons for absence and to ask for medical evidence.
The classroom doors are open from 8.45am - 9.00am and any child who arrives once their classroom door has been closed, should register at the school office before coming into school. Further information can be found in our Attendance Policy below:
Each term we are required to submit attendance data for our school to the Lead Attendance Officer for Suffolk County Council. Any child whose attendance is considered too low or who has been persistently absent over a number of weeks is identified and will be monitored by the Local Authority Attendance team.
