Information for Parents and Carers

At Hetton School we are constantly striving to improve School Attendance.

We hope this section of the website will fully explain the procedures for School Attendance, with a view to making the system easier for parents, pupils and the school.

Hetton School – Attendance Policy

DfE Guidelines:

The parent of every child of compulsory school age is required to ensure that the child receives a full time education suitable to the child’s ability, age, aptitude and any special education needs the child may have by ensuring regular attendance at school. Failure of a parent to secure regular attendance of their school registered child of compulsory school age can lead to a penalty notice or prosecution.
