We want our pupils to get the best education, and the building blocks for this begin with pupils coming to school each and every day. If children miss school regularly, they miss out on learning the fundamental skills that will set them up for success in the later years of school.
Our approach to ensuring regular school attendance is based on the Powys Traffic Lights attendance Scheme.
