Attendance and Punctuality 
'Attendance Matters'

Holm Cultram Abbey C of E School believes  that all pupils benefit from education and therefore from regular school attendance.  We will strive to  ensure that all pupils achieve the maximum possible attendance and that any problems, which may impede full attendance, are acted on as quickly as possible.  We are aware that irregular school attendance may be an indicator of any possible safeguarding/welfare issues and therefore the monitoring of attendance has a very high priority in the school.

We believe that high levels of attendance are a pre-requisite for academic success and for making the most of the opportunities afforded by school.

We are currently updating the policy .
