Late/Absence Procedures

Good attendance and punctuality at Lake Farm Park Academy (LFPA) is vital for a pupil’s education and establishes a positive working ethos early in life. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education, it is vital that they attend every day, unless the reason for absence is unavoidable. It is also very important that they arrive on time every day.

Poor attendance can have a significant impact on a child’s:

  • Attainment and progress;
  • Relationships with other children and their ability to form lasting friendships;
  • Confidence to attempt new work and work alongside others.

LFPA’s attendance policy is written with reference to the DfE’s ‘School Attendance’ guidance (October 2014).
