We believe that excellent attendance at Manor Park Primary Academy will give your child the best possible chance of being successful in education.

Missing a few days of school here and there may not seem a big deal, but it shows that it can have a significant impact on children’s learning.

If your child misses school just twice per month, they will lose out on 18 days’ education across the school year – that’s nearly four weeks!

Children who do not attend school fall behind their peers, and struggle to catch up. Most of the work they miss is never made up, which can lead to big gaps in their learning.

Friendships can be affected by persistent absence, too: it can be hard if your child misses lots of school to form relationships with their classmates. Poor attendance reflects badly on the school, their class & your child.

Making sure your child comes to school every day is vital. Occasionally children are unwell, however we encourage parents to bring children in as soon as they are feeling better. If your child feels unwell during the day we will, of course, inform you.
