On this page you will be able to find the latest information about attendance, including forms and information about requesting a Leave of Absence during term time.

At Hall Green Primary School we believe that regular school attendance is the key to enabling children to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community.

Pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind.

Our aim is to support children and their families in attending school every day and identify those groups of children that are at risk of becoming persistent absentees (below 90%).
