Attendance and Punctuality

Attendance and Punctuality

Our School attendance target is 96%

2018 – 2019 attendance was 95.5%

At Pegasus Primary School– A part of Summit Learning Trust, we believe that high levels of attendance and a punctual start to the school day are important for all children.

Promoting excellent attendance is the responsibility of the whole school community: staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors.

The school consistently promotes good attendance through its high expectations in pupil behaviour, attitudes towards learning and through the curriculum.


All children should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.

We aim to ensure that every pupil has access to the full-time education to which they are entitled and as a result ‘suceed to thrive’.

Occasionally your child may be reluctant to attend school, we encourage parents to discuss any concerns they have with the class teacher in the first instance; any problems that arise with attendance are best resolved between school, the parents/carers and the child.


Ms Doyle is our attendance lead and is always happy to meet with you to talk through any concerns or questions you may have.
