Pupil Attendance

Managing Pupil Attendance aligns with our Mission Statement: "To inspire our pupils within a supportive caring environment to be lifelong learners, enabling all pupils to realise their full potential and become tolerant and confident adults."

Regular school attendance is crucial in raising standards in education and ensuring that every pupil can have full access to the school curriculum and reach their potential.  Grosvenor Grammar School will strive to promote an ethos and culture which encourages good attendance and where each pupil will feel valued and secure.

Where possible, medical and dental appointments should be made outside school hours.

When a pupil returns to school after a period of absence, parents/guardians are required to provide a note for the Form Tutor which states the reason for their child's absence.

The Department of Education has produced a Guide for Parents concerning Pupil Attendance at School.  This can be downloaded below:
