Home Children and Young People Make 100% school attendance your priority

Make 100% school attendance your priority

by Guy Murphy

Children and young people across Knowsley are encouraged to make 100% school attendance their key priority and make every day count.

Regular school attendance will give children and young people the very best start in life, providing opportunities to learn, develop and succeed.

Missing school could result in children falling behind which could impact on their confidence, health and wellbeing.

It’s really important that a regular bed-time and morning routine is maintained to help children and young people get to school on time.

By attending school regularly, you are opening up a range of opportunities to learn new skills, develop interests, meet new friends and socialise, try things that you’ve never tried before and above all, achieve and succeed which will help you to build your confidence.

Remember if your child is ill, please contact the school immediately so that their absence can be authorised.

Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said “It’s really important that children attend school regularly and aim to achieve 100% attendance for the remainder of this year and the years ahead.

“Let’s all work together to make every day count and support your child to achieve 100% school attendance.”

If you do have any concerns about your child’s school attendance, please speak to their Teacher who can provide help and support.
