Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success, both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of achieving their full potential.
Students who attend school regularly also feel more connected to their community, develop important social skills and friendships, and are significantly more likely to leave school with good qualifications, setting them up for a strong future.
At Priestlands we want to build a partnership with parents and seek your full support in ensuring that your child attends school every day, and on time. We are keen to work together with students and parents in resolving any difficulties or barriers to attending.
To talk about your child’s attendance please contact a key member of staff from their Year Team.
