At Hodge Hill Girls’ School, we are committed to encouraging pupils to attend school on a daily basis. Attending school regularly helps to raise achievement and attainment and pupils have shown enthusiasm for learning since they returned to school last week.
Pupils are expected to arrive into school from 8.25am registration which takes place at 8.35am. Those who arrive after 8.35am will receive a late mark. 
Absent school days and lessons missed can affect your child’s attendance and learning as demonstrated in the table below:

Attendance during one school year Equals this number of days absent Equals this number of weeks absent Equals this number of lessons missed
95% 9 days 2 weeks 50 lessons
90% 19 days 4 weeks 100 lessons
85% 29 days 6 weeks 150 lessons
80% 38 days 8 weeks 200 lessons
