Growing together in learning, love and faith


At Hucknall National C of E Primary School we aspire to cultivate the gifts and talents of every child and equip them with the wisdom, knowledge and skills to live life in all its fullness: its joys and celebrations, its sorrows and struggles. 


We understand that barriers to attendance are complex, and that some pupils find it harder than others to attend school; therefore, we will continue to prioritise cultivating a safe and supportive environment at school, as well as strong and trusting relationships with pupils and parents.

We take a whole-school approach to securing good attendance, and recognise the impact that our efforts in other areas – such as the curriculum, behaviour standards, bullying, SEND support, pastoral support, and the effective use of resources such as pupil premium – can have on improving pupil attendance.

We are committed to:

  • Promoting and modelling high attendance and its benefits.
  • Ensuring equality and fairness for all. 
  • Ensuring this attendance policy is clear and easily understood by staff, pupils and parents.
  • Intervening early and working with other agencies to ensure the health and safety of our pupils.
  • Building strong relationships with families to overcome barriers to attendance.
  • Working collaboratively with other schools in the area, as well as other agencies.
  • Ensuring parents follow the framework set in section 7 of the Education Act 1996, which states that the parent of every child of compulsory school age shall cause them to receive efficient full-time education suitable to their age, ability and aptitude, and to any SEND they may have, either by regular attendance at school or otherwise. 
  • Regularly monitoring and analysing attendance and absence data to identify pupils or cohorts that require more support.


Linked Christian Values: Love, Forgiveness, Respect, Hope, Thankfulness, Trust.
