How to prevent your child from missing school

You can help prevent your child missing school by:

  • having a routine from an early age and sticking it to it
  • making sure your child understands the importance of good attendance and punctuality
  • making sure they understand the possible implications for themselves and you as a parent if they don't attend
  • taking an interest in their education - ask about school work and encourage them to get involved in school activities
  • discussing any problems they may have at school and letting their teacher or Headteacher know about anything that is causing concern
  • not letting them take time off school for minor ailments or holidays during term time
