Attendance at Thatcham Park

Being at School

School education lays the vital foundations of a child’s life. Research clearly demonstrates the link between regular attendance and educational progress and attainment. Parents/carers and the school staff should work in partnership in making education a success and in ensuring that all children have full and equal access to all that the school has to offer. As a school, we will encourage parents and carers to ensure that their child achieves maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent this are identified and acted on promptly. As parents, it is their responsibility to ensure that their children arrive at school and return home safely.




We expect that all pupils will:

  • attend school every day
  • attend school punctually
  • attend appropriately prepared for the day
  • discuss promptly with their class teacher or school office any problems  that may affect their school attendance.

We expect that all parents/carers will:

  • ensure regular school attendance and be aware of their legal responsibilities.
  • ensure that their child arrives at school punctually and prepared for the school day.
  • ensure that they contact the school daily of absence or if known in advance, whenever their child is unable to attend school.
