Attendance & Holidays
To enable all pupils to benefit from their education Timbercroft are committed to securing full attendance at the school and good time keeping on arrival.
Good attendance at school makes it easier for your child to make, and keep, good friends as well as being able to learn well. There is a direct correlation between good school attendance and getting good qualifications at GCSE. The government's expected attendance for primary aged pupils is at least 96%, which allows for the usual incidence of childhood illnesses.
Where ever possible we ask that all dental and medical appointments should be made outside of school hours.
The school encourages and celebrates good attendance through a range of rewards, both for individuals and classes.
We have a structured approach to supporting children with poor attendance and work closely with our in-school’s attendance officer, Mrs Mandy Pergjoni, our attendance advisory service SEAAS and the Royal Borough of Greenwich to this end. If your child is too ill to attend school, please:
Contact the school office via 020 8854 6915 or firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am
Holidays taken in school time are not authorised and could result in a fine. Families taking holidays in term time will be referred to the Educational Welfare Officer.
