Attendance

At Canterbury Nursery School we believe good attendance is essential if children are to be settled and take full advantage of the learning and development opportunities available to them. Good attendance is a skill for life and has an impact on a child’s whole school experience.  As well as affecting your child’s academic potential, poor or irregular attendance can have an impact on your child’s friendships, self-esteem and confidence.  Also we believe regular attendance at nursery can set good practice for statutory school.

90% attendance sounds good, but means that your child misses:

  • one half day each week,
  • nearly four weeks every school year
  • one school year over the course of the whole school lifetime

We expect all our children at nursery to attend regularly as we know how much they learn from being here every day. We ask all our families to aim for 90% attendance.  If a child’s attendance has fallen below this, we would invite the family to come and meet with us to discuss their child's attendance and offer any support needed to help it improve.
