St. Chad’s Catholic & Church of England High School are currently reviewing their attendance policy and practice.
Our school are working towards an attendance target of 97%. St. Chad’s promotes the link between attendance and attainment which in turn, as you will know, lead to choices in life and success in the future.
In order for students to reach this target of 97%, school will continue to closely monitor the attendance of all students and will be contacting parents/carers by letter, when attendance concerns arise.
One of the main changes will be that St. Chad’s are adopting a policy of requiring Medical Evidence for any student who has had 7 days, 14 sessions of illness this academic year. This can take the form of either an appointment card, prescription or proof of current prescribed medication.
In order to improve punctuality across the school, registers will close at 9.30am. Students who arrive after this time will be coded as ‘U’ (Unauthorised). Persistent lateness after the close of registers may be referred to the Local Authority for possible legal action.
Additionally, school will still be working closely with the Local Authority regarding any unauthorised absences which may result in the issue of penalty notices if the unauthorised absences persist. Full details of all of the absence information will be available on the school website in the near future. We look forward to your continued support.
In conjunction with Cheshire Police, St Chad’s is involved in a new initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, children will often arrive at school distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate school staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.
At St Chad’s our Key Adults are Sara Heron (Deputy Head) and Debbie Groome (CAF/Attendance Coordinator).
This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it the most
You can find our more by visiting www.operationencompass.org or by contacting our Key Adults.
