Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways we can prepare each child for success – both in school and in life. When we make school attendance a priority, each child will get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behaviour and be successful in their future careers.  Our school attendance target is 96%.

Our aim is to work in partnership with parents and carers to the remove barriers to good school attendance. We strive to establish good working relationships with the families of our young people through good communication and regular meetings to address on-going attendance concerns. If necessary we signpost our families to specialist support services who can work with us in a multi-agency approach.​

We regularly hold whole school and tutor group activities to celebrate good attendance and academic progress. These are given to students for a variety of reasons including, good performance in specific subjects, attendance and punctuality. Learners receive points for our positive behaviour points system for punctuality and attendance. Where students improve on personal attendance or behaviour after being of some concern, individual rewards may be given. e.g. gift vouchers

At LPW the lessons start at 9:30, however we encourage everyone to join us from 9:00 for breakfast and a check in. School lateness has a big impact. If your child is regularly late you could be missing's days of school! This will ultimately impact learning and can make entering a classroom once your here challenging and learners will often miss important information about the day. We do recognise that there may be a rare occasion when your child is late due to unforeseen circumstances, please contact your child's keyworker to inform them if this is the case. 

Persistent lateness: When a child has been identified as having persistent lateness, we will inform parents/careers of our concerns. In the first instance by an informal chat with your Childs keyworker or Attendance Officer. We will then monitor lateness, expecting to see an improvement. Further action maybe required if punctuality doesn't improve.
