Attendance and Punctuality
16 September 2019
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|
