We believe at Bapchild and Tonge that good attendance is key to good learning. It is well known that regular attendance at school is vital to help children achieve and get the best possible start in life.
Attendance in one school year

To ensure that we are able to provide the best education to your child and that we don’t see a decline in attendance and punctuality it is important the school knows why children are not in school, i.e. they are sick, at the dentist etc. Punctuality is also important which also affects attendance. The school registration closes at 9.00am and any child arriving after this time will be given an unauthorised absence mark.
