All schools see a link between good attendance and children achieving their potential. Some parents at KPNS recently received a letter detailing the attendance of their child since September - we will be contacting families again soon if the attendance of their child falls below 90% as these children are very likely to fall behind with their school work.
We have noticed an increase in unauthorised absences recently, and as such want to draw your attention to the letter attached below that was sent out last November. The letter details how Notts County Council issue penalty charges of £120 where there is unacceptable absence from school. Parents should be aware, especially if their child's attendance is already low, that a penalty charge could be issued.
Please contact school if you would like to discuss this matter further.
