Good school attendance is extremely important to your child’s academic progress and success.   We expect a minimum of 95% attendance to ensure our pupils can reach their full academic potential.

Persistent absence from school without a valid reason can result in a parental meeting with your child being put on an attendance agreement and a scheduled meeting with the Education Welfare Officer.  We can reserve the right to not support the exam entries of pupils whose attendance is persistently below 85%.  We can also seek to withdraw a pupil from some or all of their exams and their place at school may be withdrawn if unacceptable attendance continues.

Please support us in helping to ensure your child thrives at Wanstead by attending every day.
