Attendance

Aims:

All schools in Kernow Learning aim to meet their obligations with regards to school attendance by:

  • Promoting good attendance and reducing absence, including persistent absence
  • Ensuring every pupil has access to full-time education to which they are entitled
  • Acting early to address patterns of absence
 
We will also support parents to perform their legal duty to ensure their children of compulsory school age attend regularly, and will promote and support punctuality in attending lessons.

Mabe School actively encourage regular attendance by providing rich curriculum activities. Children need to attend regularly if they are to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them.

Irregular attendance undermines the educational process and may lead to educational disadvantage.

Parents are primarily responsible for ensuring that children attend school. It is the school’s responsibility to support attendance and to take seriously problems which may lead to non-attendance.

Support:

If parents have any concerns about their child’s attendance, then we ask that they speak to the class teacher in the first instance or make an appointment via the school office to meet with Jules Jenkins the Headteacher.

Education Wellfare Office:

Mrs Allison Mc Gee-Harrison is the welfare Officer at Penryn College and she also works for a number of feeder primary schools which includes Mabe. The EWO meets regularly with the Headteacher in order to monitor whole school and individual attendance. When appropriate Mrs Mc Gee-Harrison may contact families direct.
