Attendance 2015 - 2016

Attendance at Lea Forest Primary Academy will be a priority this academic year; the school’s target is 97% and we will be working very hard to achieve that!

This week we will be sending out two letters in regards to attendance; the first letter will be going to every parent/carer of a pupil at Lea Forest Primary Academy. This letter will provide details of the Education Welfare Support Spotlight campaign that the school runs to tackle unacceptable levels of attendance. At Lea Forest we will start to monitor pupils once they have fallen below 95%. The second letter is being sent to parents/carers of pupils whose attendance was less than 95% for last academic year (2014-2015).

Worryingly we have over 160 pupils who fall into this category. These pupils will be monitored from the beginning of this term. This is a serious concern and has resulted in 30 families being referred to the spotlight campaign last year.

If you have any enquiries about attendance please contact Mr Wills, Senior Learning Mentor, Attendance Lead & DSL via the main office.
