Attendance at school is compulsory and a legal requirement. 

At Sambourne School we are committed to equality of opportunity for its pupils and will work alongside pupils and parents to enable all children to maximise their attendance and their access to the curriculum. 

  • Education prepares children for life, is precious and is a right to which every child is entitled.
  • Regular attendance underpins children achieving their full potential.
  • Absence from school can seriously disrupt a child’s continuity of learning and can cause anxiety for the child. Not only do they miss essential lessons, many children find it difficult to catch up when they return, nor will they be able to participate confidently alongside their peers.
  • Attendance and punctuality are valuable life skills.
