Wickhambrook Primary Academy


Wickhambrook Primary Academy is committed to providing an education of the highest quality for all its pupils and recognises that this can only be achieved by supporting and promoting excellent school attendance for all. This is based on the belief that only by attending school regularly and punctually will children and young people be able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them.

High attainment depends on good attendance.

The whole school community – pupils, parents and carers, teaching and support staff and school governors – have a responsibility for ensuring good school attendance and have important roles to play.

We need your support in ensuring that children arrive on time with the equipment that they need.  We ask that holidays are not taken in school time so that your child has the very best opportunity to succeed.

Each term we are required to submit attendance data for our school to the Lead Attendance Officer from Suffolk County Council. Any child whose attendance is considered too low or who are persistently absent over a number of weeks are identified and monitored by this service and our school.
