At the Gateway Primary Academy, we aim to promote good attendance and reduce absence, including: persistent absence. We aim to ensure that every pupil at our school has access to the full-time education to which they are entitled. In our policy below, we outline how we monitor and promote attendance. We also outline our policies on medical appointments and absence in exceptional circumstances.
Our gates are opened at 8.40 am every day for children and parents to come onto the playground. The doors are then opened at 8.50 am. If your child arrives after 9.05 they will need to go to the main office and be signed in.
If your child is unwell, please ensure you ring the office and leave a message on the first day of their absence.
