If your child is absent through sickness or any unavoidable cause, please could you inform the school by telephone or text message in the first instance on 0161 344 2905. This absence constitutes an authorised absence. A note will be required from you on the child's return. The school has a ‘first day contact’ system for child absence. A member of staff will endeavour to contact parents should a child not appear for morning register and a message not received. Again, we would appreciate an early telephone call to let us know of any absences.
The administration of attendance has been enhanced by computerised registration. The Educational welfare Officer monitors the attendance of children regularly.
If you are delayed and not able to pick your child up on time, please contact the school as soon as possible. Our telephone number is 0161 344 2905.
Attendance is a performance indicator and schools are required by law to publish details of absence rates for 2006-2007. As Ravensfield has only been in existence since September 2007 we do not have that information.
Our attendance target for 2009/10 is 94.2%
