Attendance

Attendance & Punctuality

Longfield recognises the importance of full attendance and aims to ensure that all pupils achieve and maintain high standards of attendance and punctuality. We are committed to providing a full and efficient educational experience for all pupils.

We feel that our parents/carers provide the school with outstanding support. Our parents/carers understand that they have a responsibility to aid the education process and they ensure that pupils attend regularly, on time, and in a suitable condition to learn. Longfield parents appreciate that regular attendance is a prerequisite to a good education and therefore a priority for the school.

Message to Parents/Carers

At Longfield, we appreciate parents/carers who support excellent attendance throughout the school year.

Every term, if your child achieves a minimum of 98% attendance, you will be entered into a prize draw. Two lucky winners will receive a £50 ASDA voucher.

Thank you for your support and good luck everyone!
