Did you know?

For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential.

At Brune Park, we want each child to have every opportunity to achieve their full potential; we stress the importance of excellent attendance and punctuality at all times, and have very high expectations for excellent attendance and punctuality.

Promoting Good Attendance

Tutors and the Year Offices support students to achieve excellent attendance, and consistently monitor students’ attendance and punctuality. If attendance falls below the expected levels, a variety of colleagues, including the attendance team, will work with the young person and their family.

A range of strategies are deployed to support improvements in attendance and include:

  • In-school support
  • Home visits
  • In-school attendance panel
  • Legal interventions (as outlined in Hampshire County Council’s code of conduct.)

If you need support or advice with attendance, please contact your child’s Tutor or the attendance team.

To help parents make judgements about absence due please use the relevant NHS guidance.

Working Together to improve school attendance

Being in school and having the best attendance possible underpins all the many benefits of school for your child, such as their learning, wellbeing and wider development.

We understand that for some children, attending school every day will be harder than for others.

As a parent, you are legally responsible for making sure your child gets a suitable full-time education, usually from the ages of 5-16

Please see the link below on how school and home need to work together to ensure excellent attendance.
