Attendance at Nursery

🔴 Research shows that children with high attendance in Nursery start primary school with better learning outcomes and high levels of school readiness.  

🔴 Encouraging regular attendance provides structure and simple routines that help children’s development.

🔴 Bring your child to Nursery on time every day. Good attendance and punctuality establishes good habits from the start. Children settle more quickly into new settings and routines.

Sessions absent by end of yearEqual to absence percentageOverall attendance percentage by end of year
85% attendance means a child will have missed 6 weeks or half a term of school by the end of the year.

If your child has an episode of sickness or diarrhoea do not bring your child to Nursery for 48 hours after the last episode. This is to ensure the health and safety of all the children and staff. 

Attendance is monitored as part of our safeguarding duty.

Inform reception if your child is going to be absent.
