Our Attendance

At Busill Jones Primary School, we take attendance very seriously. It is important to us because every child deserves an education. We are committed to providing the very best learning and this is achievable when every child is in school. 

We are striving to reach the national average for Attendance which is 96% and value parents/carers support in making this happen.

If your child attends every day between now and December 20th they will be entered into a prize raffle and could win £50 ASDA voucher for Christmas. 

The winning class will win a prize each week which will include- extra playtime, movie time, hot chocolate and popcorn and many more ideas. 


We take attendance really seriously but we need parents and carers to work with us in order for us to meet our target. We can do this!

Our School

National Average

Our School Target is 95.5%

If your child cannot attend school for any reason, please contact the school office on 01922 710700 on the first day and any subsequent day that they cannot attend. 

If it is an illness, please provide any evidence of medical care such as a GP appointment card, prescription note or medical packaging. This will support with ensuring a valid reason of absence is recorded for the Local Authority.

Impact of lateness

Being 15 minutes late each day is the same as missing 2 weeks of school.

Lost minutes = Lost learning
