The school 'year' lasts for 190 days, which leaves 175 days per year for your child to enjoy family time and holidays
At Branston Church of England Infant Academy, we regularly monitor your child's attendance at school. We appreciate that sometimes an absence is unavoidable, but we know that any absence from school will affect your child's learning.
If your child's attendance falls below 95%, we will contact you to inform you via letter, that your child's attendance has dropped and will be monitored. The useful chart below highlights the impact of non attendance and has been categorised into three stages, showing the impact low attendance has. If your child's attendance does not improve, we will seek a meeting to discuss ways in which we can work together to help and remove any barriers to improve it. This may involve working with outside support agencies such as an Education Welfare Officer.
All pupils who are in the “Green Zone” have an attendance level of 95% or more. This zone recognises patterns of good to excellent school attendance. Pupils who fall within this are more likely to do well at school and achieve good results.
All pupils who are in the “Amber Zone” have an attendance level of between 90 to 94.9%. Pupils with this level of attendance are a cause for concern and are at risk of under achieving at school.
All pupils who are in the “Red Zone” have an attendance level of below 90%. Pupils who fall within this zone are regularly absent from school and are significantly less likely to achieve their potential. Such pupils will be closely monitored by the Education Welfare Service.
