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.
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.
