This is the first letter sent when attendance has become too low.
Dear Parent or Carer
I am writing regarding your child’s attendance, which is causing concern. Please see the attached attendance certificate.
The number of days they have missed means it is more difficult for them to achieve in their learning and more likely that they will have significant gaps in their knowledge.
We will be closely monitoring your child’s attendance and expect to see improvements.
By law it is your responsibility to ensure the regular attendance and punctuality of your child. Failure to do so may lead to legal action (1996 Education Act).
I thank you for your urgent attention to this matter. If you would like support or to speak to someone in school about your child’s attendance, please contact the school office.
