Burnside Primary School and Nursery
I am delighted that Mrs Lawson is now our Burnside Attendance Officer.
You will recall I wrote to you to share our attendance expectations a short time ago. As you already know punctuality and good attendance are essential to achieving well in school.
Mrs Lawson will analyse our attendance data weekly and will be telephone parents in the first instance to bring to you attention your child's current attendance percentage ( if it falls significant below the expectation the government set of 95%). She will be offering support to make improvements should that be helpful.
In addition to this she will also be looking in depth into lateness as this also has a significant impact on children's learning. Once again she will be able to offer support should that be useful.
Please remember that Mrs Lawson is there to support you and your child.
