At Saint George’s we value regular attendance and good punctuality to school and lessons. If you have concerns about your child’s attendance contact us early to seek advice and support. Mrs Howe, Family Liaison Officer, is dedicated to this role and can offer a wide range of strategies to support families and students. We know that erratic attendance has a significant impact on learning, progress and attainment.
If your child’s attendance continues to present a concern the school will use the legal framework available. Initially this is a Fixed Penalty Notice Warning letter and if matters do not improve a Fixed Penalty Notice. Payment of a Penalty Notice within 42 days is now £120 reduced to £60 if paid within 28 days of receipt of the notice. Please note this is an increase which each parent is liable to be fined.
