At Cosheston VC School we want all of our pupils to achieve success, so it is important that parents do their best to support pupils in attending school for the full 190 days in an academic year, as stated in the Education (School Day and School Year) (Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2006.

Under the Education Act (1996), it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that their son/daughter attend school and in the event of an absence a phone call on the morning of the first day of absence be made to school. If your child has a medical appointment, the appointment letter must be shown to the class teacher.

The school follows Pembrokeshire County Council's absence policy. Holidays of up to 10 days may be authorised only in exceptional circumstances.

Regular school attendance is vital and missing school can have a significant impact on achievement over a one year period as illustrated below:



95-100% attendance

Best chance of success

Your child is taking full advantage of every learning opportunity.

90-95% attendance

At least 2 weeks of learning missed

Satisfactory. Your child may have to spend time catching up with work.

85-90% attendance

At least 4 weeks of learning missed

Your child may be at risk of underachieving and may need extra support from you to catch up with work.

80-85% attendance

 At least 5 1⁄2 weeks of learning missed

Your child’s poor attendance has a significant impact on learning.

Below 80% attendance

At least 71⁄2 weeks of learning missed

Your child is missing out on a broad and balanced education. You are at risk of prosecution.


Procedures Before and After School

Children should be in school no more than 15 minutes before school starts.

At the end of the school day if parents wish to meet their children the gate will be unlocked at the end of the school day and pupils dismissed to a known adult by the teacher.

If parents who normally meet their children at the end of the day are unable to do so, they must inform the school of any alternative arrangements.

If no-one arrives to meet pupils the Head Teacher/teacher will contact parents so that arrangements can be made to get them home safely.



For all pupils
