Attendance Policy (2023)
Orchard Primary School seeks to ensure that all of its pupils receive an education which enables them to maximise opportunities to reach their full potential.
Research shows there is evidence of a strong link between good attendance and increased attainment. Pupils who regularly attend school make much better progress both socially and academically. Regular attendance enables pupils to adapt better to routines, schoolwork, and friendship groups.
Therefore, those pupils will have a positive experience of learning and a more successful transition from primary to secondary and beyond to further education and training.
