Attendance and Punctuality

At Phillimore, we expect all children to achieve a minimum of 96% attendance.


We expect this because it is well known that missing school leads to children developing gaps in their learning. Being absent for just one lesson begins the formation of these 'gaps', missing information that children find almost impossible to catch up on and later becomes a barrier to their progression.


We have signed up for Sheffield City Councils' Attendance Charter, which is part

of the 'Every School Day Matters' campaign.
