Letter 2 - Attendance Meeting invitation

This is the letter we send to invite you to an attendance meeting.


Dear Parent or Carer


I am writing to invite you to a meeting with Mrs Blakemore to discuss your child’s attendance, which is continuing to cause us 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.


The meeting is your opportunity to tell us anything that may be preventing your child from attending school every day and to see if school can offer support.


The date and time of the meeting is: ________________________________________


                                                         at: ________________________________________


Please make every effort to attend. 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).


It is only by working together that we will be able to ensure the best possible outcome for your child.


I thank you for your urgent attention to this matter and we look forward to seeing you.
