Pupils with this attendance are missing a day for every week of school!!!

 

It will become almost impossible for them to keep up with their work. Parents of pupils with this level of attendance will be well known to the Learning Mentor and EWO. Your child’s attendance will be closely monitored. If attendance does not improve then an Education Penalty Notice will be applied for and issued from the Town Hall legal department in Stockport.
