Moorbridge aims to maximise school attendance rates. Attendance is a key indicator of attitudes to learning and is a sign that we are actively engaging students. We work in close partnership with parents/carers to encourage the regular attendance of students. Whilst it is understood that parents/carers are primarily responsible for ensuring that their children attend school, it is our responsibility to support attendance.

Attendance is monitored on a weekly basis and students all work towards personalised attendance targets which are reviewed on a regular basis. Students who regularly fail to meet their attendance targets are supported by the school's guidance managers who implement strategies and interventions. Parents/carers are regularly reminded that an unauthorised absence is not acceptable and individual cases may be referred to the local authority.



  • Close liaison with parents/carers

  • A clear policy on absence and by clearly defining our expectations of students and parents/carers at interview

  • Close monitoring of students’ attendance at morning and afternoon registrations

  • Daily contact with home and regular home visits

  • Close liaison with external agencies

  • A Rewards Scheme: Students are awarded points through Class Charts for positive attendance and punctuality - Points can then be exchanged for rewards throughout the year.
