Luddenham School Every Child Can Achieve

Late/Absence Procedures


Attendance will be mandatory from 8 March 2021 and the usual rules on attendance will apply, including:

  • parents’ duty to ensure that their child of compulsory school age attends regularly at the school where the child is a registered pupil
  • schools’ responsibilities to record attendance and follow up absence
  • the ability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices, in line with local authorities’ codes of conduct


We strongly believe that in working closely with parents, we can do all we can to encourage everyone to achieve 100% attendance.


If you need to report your child's absence, please call the school office on 01795 532061  Select the option to report an absence (Option 1) and leave a message if someone does not answer as we will pick it up.


Please do not rely on the class email accounts as they may not get seen.  

Luddenham has it's own special car queue, which provides ample amount of time to drop your child off (8.30-9.00) please do make every effort to make this time.

Please note if your child is later than 9.15am (which is when registers close) then they will receive an unauthorised late mark and it will impact on their attendance %
