At Penkford, one of our school priorities is to continue to work to improve all of our pupils' attendance. Our staff work hard to encourage students and motivate them to achieve and enjoy their time in school. There is also a programme of extra curricular clubs and reward trips that are earned through excellent attendance and good behaviour.

Last academic year the overall attendance for 2017 to 2018 was 79.6%.  

To show how we are continuing our drive to improve attendance we have a dedicated Attendance & Family Support Officer and we publish weekly attendance update information, which you can find in the tables below:
