Why is good school attendance so important?

 Good attendance is a skill for life and attendance has an impact on a child’s whole school experience. 

Attending School is fantastic for lots of reasons, such as:


  • Learning new skills
  • Developing talents
  • Meeting new friends
  • Learning from each other


At Heathfield Primary School we are working closely as a school community to improve our attendance levels so that each child is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential. 


School Starts at 08:55
