Beckfoot Trust Attendance Policy

Beckfoot Upper Heaton Attendance protocol

At Beckfoot Upper Heaton we believe the home-school partnership is essential and that in turn, will help our learners to achieve and succeed. Our strategic vision ensures that the school is placed firmly within the community with families and carers recognised as key stake holders in the school.

Research going back many years has consistently told us, not surprisingly that parents are the most important people in their children’s lives, and that their support for their children’s learning and development is crucial.

Working together we are very proud of the progress we have made to ensure that every student attends school and reaches their full potential. Let’s work together and ensure our young people continue to achieve and succeed.

High attendance drives success whilst low attendance will result in unsatisfactory progress. Regular attendance at school is vital to help your child achieve and get the best possible start in life.

The attendance team will support your child to ensure they are meeting our school expectation of 97% and they will work together, with your support, to achieve the best possible outcome.

If you have any concerns or updates regarding your child’s attendance, please contact the school on 01274 493533.

There is an expectation that all parents inform the school of absence; any absence unexplained will be followed up with a home visit.
