We firmly believe that every day at school is important and we work closely with our parents to promote high levels of attendance.
The following attendance leaflets have been shared with all schools within the Horndean Cluster.
Hampshire Attendance Code of Conduct
In all Hampshire schools, Penalty Notices are issued in line with the Hampshire County Council 2019 Code of Conduct for issuing penalty notices for unauthorised absence from school. The Code of Conduct is a requirement of The Education (Penalty Notices) (England) Regulations 2007 and it applies to statutory school age children from age 5 to age 16 in all maintained schools and academies within the county of Hampshire.
Regular and punctual attendance at school is a legal requirement, as well as essential if pupils are to maximise their educational opportunities. As a school, we strive to work with parents to promote good levels of attendance, communicating effectively with parents when issues arise and openly celebrating excellent attendance.
The Hampshire Code of Conduct states that if a Penalty Notice has previously been issued (even at a previous school), a second unauthorised absence of 10 sessions out of the last 100, may result in the case being referred straight to the Attendance Legal Panel.

We know how important it is for children to arrive in school promptly and ready to learn each day, thank you for your support in promoting progress through high standards of attendance.
