Hatchlands Attendance Mission Statement
Hatchlands Primary School aims to ensure that all its pupils receive a full-time education which maximises opportunities for each pupil to be safe, happy and valued, engaged in learning and making excellent progress.
The school strives to provide a welcoming, caring environment, whereby each member of the school community feels wanted and secure. All school staff work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends school regularly and punctually.
The school encourages all pupils and parents to share the high priority we attach to attendance and punctuality. Every child has the right to a good education. Parents therefore have a responsibility to ensure that their children attend every day unless they are too ill to be at school.
Through providing opportunities for students to make a valued contribution within lessons and to the wider school community, students will enjoy and maximise their levels of achievement.
The school will only authorise absence in exceptional circumstances. Family holidays in term time will not be authorised under Surrey County Council Guidelines and will be recorded as an unauthorised absence. When children miss school for any reason, their progress can be adversely affected.
