Attendance Policy & Information

Tottington High School is committed to providing a full and efficient education to all students and embraces the concept of equal opportunities for all. We will endeavour to provide an environment where all students feel safe, healthy, supported and valued. For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential.

We will consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all children. Every opportunity will be used to convey to students and their parents or carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance. School attendance is subject to various Education laws and this school attendance policy is written to reflect these laws and the guidance produced by the DfE. Each year the school will examine its attendance figures and set attendance/absence targets. These will reflect both national and Bury LA attendance targets.

The school will review its systems for improving attendance at regular intervals to ensure that it is achieving its set goals. This policy will contain within it the procedures that the school will use to meet its attendance targets.
