Attendance…Lateness…Appointments

ATTENDANCE… at Ercall wood is monitored on a weekly basis by our on site Education Welfare Officer (EWO), we pride ourselves on been proactive and keeping our attendance at a high level to meet the targets set by the local authority. Parents /carers of young people who have low levels of attendance could be subjected to legal action been taken against them by the local authority. Early intervention by the EWO and staff helps to maintain good levels of attendance for all year groups.

LATENESS…every child is expected to arrive at school no later than 8.50am each school day. If a young person arrives late for registration more than once a week they will be issued with either a break time or after school detention. It is asked that you contact school if you are aware that your child is going to be late. If they arrive after 9.30am they will be coded as unauthorised late.

APPOINTMENTS…we understand that most young people will be subject to doctors/dentist/ hospital appointments at some time, however we do request that where possible these are made at the beginning or the end of the school day. We do ask that your child where possible returns to school after any appointment and does not take the whole school day off.
