Attendance Matters


At Dudley Wood Primary School and Pre-School we believe that good attendance is vital for all children to be confident, happy and independent learners. Good attendance is 97% or above, no more than 6 days off school in a year.


Our aim is to give a clear and consistent message to parents/carers and children in our schools, which we will constantly reinforce in our day-to-day work. 


Good attendance is a priority at Dudley Wood Primary School and Pre-School and our target is to achieve 97% or above by the end of this academic year. 


Excellent attendance is important to ensure that children are settled in school and have the best opportunity to receive a complete education. 


All children are expected to attend school every day.
