Attendance & Punctuality

All children are entitled to receive an effective full-time education suitable to their age, ability and aptitude. It is the joint responsibility of the school and parents/carers to ensure that our children receive that education.

Gray's Farm Primary Academy expects all children to attend school every day that the school is open, in full school uniform, arriving on time, registering for the morning and afternoon sessions and remaining for the full school day.

Only the school has the right to authorise absence. The school will not do this if they believe that a child’s attainment is being significantly impaired by his/her level of attendance.

As part of the school attendance policy, referrals will be made to our Attendance Advisory Service the South Eastern Attendance Advisory Service (SEAAS) where there are concerns about a child’s attendance which has not been resolved by the school and/or when the school believes that the child’s attainment is significantly impaired by his/her level of attendance.
