At Grove Lea Primary School we work hard to monitor and track attendance. If a child is absent and we have not heard by a parent/carer by 11am we will ring to ask where the child is. If no contact can be made another phone call will be made to another adult on the contact list. If we still can not obtain information why the child is absent we will contact the Educational Welfare Officer for further advice. We have a statutory duty to safeguard all our children. If your child is away on holiday or absent due to ill health it is imperative you contact the school as soon as possible.
The Head, Deputy and Assistant Head Teacher meet weekly with the Learning mentor to discuss attendance.
We thank you for your support.
