Evidence shows that an individual’s qualifications will be seriously affected if attendance issues are not fully addressed. Woodbridge High School has high expectations in terms of attendance and punctuality and will work in partnership with parents to support their role in promoting good attendance. All pupils should aim to achieve a maximum of 100% attendance and punctuality. Those who achieve this will be recognised through the rewards system.
The school will work with the Local Authority to monitor students’ attendance and punctuality and will use strategies to improve these where required. The school will follow the Local Authority’s policies and use legal sanctions against parents when there is persistent absence from and lateness to school.
