Attendance Policy and Procedure

IOANID International Preschool seeks to ensure that all its students receive an education which enables them to reach their full potential.
Research shows a strong link between good attendance and increased attainment so we strive for each of our students to achieve attendance that is at least in line with national average at 97%.
For the welfare, health, safety and educational benefit of the international nature of its community, IOANID Preschool International Education registers children throughout the school year. IOANID Preschool International Education requires regular attendance and punctuality.
The presence of children is checked daily at the start of the morning session, 9:00, and again at the start of the afternoon session, 1:00 PM. This attendance register is a legal document subject to the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) in respect of both inclusion in, and deletion from the register. IOANID Preschool International Education is committed to ensuring that the attendance register is maintained in accordance with these regulations. For this reason Class Teachers must ensure the register is filled in properly in accordance with the procedures in this document and returned daily to the Head of School.
Through partnership working with parents we promote regular attendance, for all students at our school.
IOANID International Preschool will:
•    Report to parents how their child is achieving in school and how their child’s attendance is impacting on this, via regular parent meetings.
•    The attendance and punctuality will influence on the siblings admission to school
•    Monitor individual student’s attendance and when absences and lateness are common, head of school will meet with the parents to discuss the impact on the children’s learning and development
•    Call the parent if the child is not collected at the appointed time
•    Call the parent if the child is missing school
•    Acknowledge Punctuality and Good Attendance
  Notify parents when we are worried about their child’s attendance by following the procedure below:
•    Follow up any unexplained absences on the second day of absence through parental contact.

IOANID preschool expects parents to:
•    Impress to their child the importance of regular school attendance and the link between good attendance and attainment
•    Keep absences to a minimum, ensuring that their children are only absent when they are genuinely too sick to attend and ensuring their attendance as soon as they are fit to return.
•    Establish effective communication with us to swiftly address any worries their child may have about any aspect of their education, so that we can work together to resolve this, in these instances parents should contact their child’s student manager who will know your child and will be happy to support you and your child to ensure your child can attend regularly and reach their full potential
•    Contact the school in advance or the latest on the 1st day of absence to inform of the reason for absence and the expected return date keeping us informed if the absence is likely to continue so we can ensure your child is safe, and in instances where absence is going to be continual so that we can ensure Morning registers should all be completed by 9.10 am at the latest.  Afternoon registers should be completed by 1pm.
Any pupils (parents) arriving after 9:05 are being seen by the Head of School and they will be marked in the register as late (L).
Holiday Leave
As an independent school, IOANID Preschool International Education, follows the BSO requirements and parents are therefore discouraged from taking their child(ren) on holiday during term time. The School informs parents of the dates of term over a year in advance (see the School Calendar) in order that parents might arrange holidays without disrupting their child’s education
