Attendance and Punctuality at Amberley Primary School



Promoting School Attendance, Getting to School - On Time- Every Day!


Attending school has a huge impact on children's academic success starting from Nursery right through to High School. Research shows that pupils with high levels of school attendance are more likely to benefit from education, achieve better exam results and go on to have more successful careers.

Families play a key role in making sure their children get to school safely and on time.
