Attendance

Attendance Counts, Moments Matter  

You can support your child’s physical, social and mental wellbeing by ensuring they are in school every day. We know that parents and carers worry about their children’s mental health. Rather than keeping your child off school, let us know about your concerns. We can then work together on supporting your child.  

It can be difficult to know whether your child is too ill to attend school. NHS guidance is clear that it’s fine to send them in with a minor cough or common cold, provided they don’t have a temperature. https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/  

School attendance is important for equipping your child with skills for life.  

Attending school every day can help your child to achieve their aspirations, and the aspirations you have for them.  

We know that coming to school every day makes all the difference.  That's why we are striving for 97% attendance in all our schools.  

If your child is absent, please ring the school absence line ASAP on the morning, or email crayfordabsence@habstrustsouth.org.uk  

Please do not email individual staff about student absence.
