At Lakeside we are committed to improving the attendance and punctuality of our children. It is only through maintaining a good level of attendance and punctuality that children can make the most of their opportunities at school. All children’s attendance is closely monitored and excellent attendance is rewarded through the giving of certificates. If we have concerns about a child’s attendance we will contact parents to offer support in how this can be improved.

Please click here for Lakeside’s Attendance Leaflet for Parents, giving guidance on attendance and punctuality.
