Positive Learning, Positive Life

Attendance

Statement

Children only get one chance at school, and a child’s chances of a successful future may be affected by not attending school regularly.

We follow and accept the Attendance Policy written by Lambeth Authority.

The Livity School is committed to working with Parents/Carers, Lambeth Education, Social Care and other relevant agencies to ensure the school’s expectations of pupils attending and arriving on time are achieved.  The school has a legal obligation to teach pupils for a prescribed number of hours each day and seeks to ensure that all its pupils receive a full-time education, which maximises opportunities for each pupil to realise their true potential.

Regular attendance at school will ensure that each pupil receives his/her entitlement to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.  Parents are asked to give their child the best chance of a successful life and make sure that their children miss as little school as possible.
