Welcome to South Wellfield First School where We Shine Brightly!

  1. Families
  2. Attendance


As a school we would like to take a moment to emphasise the importance of good attendance for your child's success in school. Regular attendance is a crucial factor in ensuring that your child receives a quality education.

When students are present in the classroom, they have the opportunity to engage in meaningful learning experiences, interact with their peers, and benefit from the guidance of their teachers. Consistent attendance also helps students develop important life skills such as responsibility, time management, and perseverance.

Research has consistently shown that students with good attendance have higher academic achievement. On the other hand, students with poor attendance often struggle academically and may face long-term consequences in terms of their educational and career opportunities.

At our school, we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students. .

As parents, you play a crucial role in ensuring that your child attends school regularly and punctually. Here are a few tips to help you support your child's attendance:


  1. Establish a daily routine: Set a consistent schedule for waking up, getting ready, and leaving for school. This will help your child develop a habit of being on time.
  2. Emphasise the importance of attendance: Talk to your child about the value of attending school regularly and the long-term benefits it brings

  3. Encourage them to take responsibility for their education.


    Plan family holidays during school breaks: Schedule family holidays during school holidays to minimise disruptions to your child's attendance.

  5. Stay engaged in your child's education: Regularly communicate with your child's teachers to stay informed about their progress and any concerns that may arise.

We want to assure you that we are here to support you and your child in any way we can. If you are facing challenges that may affect your child's attendance, please contact us. We have resources and support services available to help overcome any barriers.

Together, let's strive for excellent attendance and provide our children with the best possible educational opportunities.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
