Attendance and Punctuality

At Eastbrook Primary Academy we take attendance and punctuality very seriously. Regular and punctual attendance at school is key to both academic and social development, which will improve the chances of children and young people. 

We continually look at ways to improve attendance and have created a leaflet entitled Attendance and Punctuality to help parents/carers ensure that their child(ren) attends school regularly and punctually in addition to the school's Attendance and Punctuality Policy.   

Should you now need to request an absence during school time you will need to complete a Request for Absence in Term Time form and return it to the school office.



During the term, children who receive an attendance of 96% or better are recognised and awarded with either a bronze, silver or gold certificate. If a child achieves 100% attendance for that term, they are also awarded a special badge. We are aware that children do become ill from time to time and require days off for sickness which cannot be avoided. These three certificates allow us to celebrate every child who has managed to reach the attendance target each term. 

Bronze Award - 96-97% attendance

Silver Award - 98-99% attendance

Gold Award - 100% attendance
