IES Breckland Attendance Officer: Mrs Taylor (email)

Attendance is closely linked to academic achievement.  The more days of education missed by a student, the lower their chances of success.

In line with government expectations, IES Breckland has the following aims:

  • Promote an expectation that children will attend school every day the school is available and reduce absence, including persistent absence (a child is classed as being persistently absence if they fail to attend at least 90%, which equates to one day of absence every two weeks).
  • Ensure every student has access to full-time education to which they are entitled, and, act early to address patterns of absence.
  • Encourage parents to perform their legal duty by ensuring their children of compulsory school age who are registered at school attend school every day the school is available.
  • Ensure all students are punctual to their lessons.
