South Petherton Church of England Infants and Pre-School


It is the responsibility of parents and guardians to contact the school as early as possible on the first day of absence.


Attendance at School is a Priority

Research shows that there is a direct link between good attendance and achievement in school.  Poor attendance can have a direct effect on a pupil's attainment.


For example, 90% attendance might sounds quite acceptable but what it really means in reality is...

  • on average half a day's school missed every week (Would an employer this this is an acceptable rate of attendance?)
  • This would also mean in one year 4 whole weeks of schooling is missed.
  • In 5 years it would mean half a school year missed.


For further details please refer to the Yeovil Federation Guidance for Parents and Students.
