Attendance

Good attendance and punctuality is important at Abbey Park we believe that making sure your child attends school every day is the most important thing.


If your child is going to be absent due to illness or exceptional circumstances, please contact the school office before 9am.


Once every half term we send out attendance letters to let you know where your child falls on our attendance traffic light system.

  • If your child comes home with a green letter then their attendance is 97% and above
  • If your child comes home with a yellow letter then their attendance is between 93% and 96%
  • If your child comes home with a red letter then their attendance is 92% and below and they therefore fall into the persistent absentee category.


We also reward excellent attendance. At the end of every term we hold a big celebration assembly and invite the parents of the children who have achieved 100% attendance.
