At Penkford school one of our key priorities is excellent attendance and punctuality. We work hard to improve and maintain the attendance of all our pupils’. Our staff work tirelessly in encouraging students and motivating them to achieve their full potential and enjoy their time in school. We also appreciate the support of parents and carers who know how important attending school on time is, and understand that good attendance and time keeping gives the best opportunities for our pupils future and life chances.

We run a programme of rewards and trips that are earned through and celebrate excellent attendance, punctuality and good behaviour. Please see our Attendance Information leaflet below for guidance and support.

Attendance Information Leaflet


Last academic year the overall attendance for 2019 to 2020 (prior to COVID interventions) was 85.1%.  

The link between attendance and success in school is clear: the more a pupil attends school the greater their opportunity to fulfil their potential.
