Attendance Report

The school is required to submit an average attendance report to the Local Authority for each term. These are aggregated nationally to provide an analysis of school attendance levels and the reasons given for non-attendance.

The following documents contain comparison details from the Department for Education for the last few years.

Reasons for Absence analysis 2014 - 2018
This document looks in more detail at the reasons recorded for both authorised and unauthorised absence for Dorridge Primary as compared with Local Authority and national figures.

Monitoring by school

The school monitors attendance carefully. If a child’s attendance falls below 90%, the school will make contact with the child’s parents. If improvements are not made, then both the Family Support Worker (Helen Fantham) and Educational Welfare will contact parents to investigate and support.

Punctuality is also monitored closely. Again, the school will be in contact with parents if children are regularly late. The school gates will open for both the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds at 8:40am. The doors to EYFS/KS1 open at 8:50am and close promptly at 9:00am. In KS2, doors open at 8:40am and close at 8:50am. All late arrivals must report to the reception office for their key stage.
