Attendance

Coming to School Matters

When students Miss School, they Miss Out. Did you know that children who do not attend school regularly are more likely to:

  • Fall behind in their school work.
  • Find it difficult to make and keep friends
  • Be unhappy at school.
  • Misbehave so others cannot see that they are finding the work difficult.
  • Get into bad routines that can affect them getting or keeping a job later in life. 

Facts and figures 

Did you know?

  • 10 minutes late to school each day = 33 hours lost in one year
  • Your child being late disturbs the whole class from learning
  • 90% attendance through school life is equal to a whole year of school being missed!
  • Having good routines helps your child get into good patterns for the future. 

Tips  

  • Make sure your child understands why school is important.
  • Show your child that you are interested in what they have done at school.
  • Get everything ready the night before school.
  • Arrange appointments before or after school or during the school holidays.
  • Set your alarm and your child’s alarm clocks. See who can beat the clock!
