North Lancing Primary School

Attendance Matters . . . Punctual and regular school attendance is an essential requirement for successful learning from the time a child starts school.  We have high expectations for all our children at North Lancing Primary School.  Attendance must be a priority as we can only teach those who attend. Our attendance ‘floor target’ is 96%, but we hope for 100%. Children should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.  There are 190 school days in each academic year.  This means, 175 days in each year are non-school days. These 175 days are available to spend on family time such as visits, holidays, shopping, household jobs and other appointments.
