Good attendance and punctuality are vital if pupils are to achieve their maximum potential. Hunter’s Bar Junior School is committed to working with parents/carers and pupils to ensure that each pupil benefits from the academic, personal and social opportunities available to them during their years with us.
The young child, however, is dependant upon the adults in his/her life to get them to school regularly and on time. So the focus in both Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 programmes is to establish good habits and work with parent/carers to improve attendance. In Key Stage 2 we continue to work with parent/carers and start to develop ‘self’ responsibility in the children. The school operates within a framework of local schools, including the linked secondary school.
We are, therefore, committed to a whole school approach to attendance and a partnership relationship with parent/carers.
