At Malvern, we provide our learners with the very best start to their education. We understand that, when pupils attend school regularly, they cultivate deeper friendships and their academic outcomes improve. This understanding underpins our whole school attendance policy and informs our belief that ‘Every Day Counts’. Celebration of outstanding attendance is key to our philosophy.

Our Approach to Attendance

Celebration of outstanding attendance is key to our philosophy. When attendance falls below expectations, we follow established systems to support families to make improvements quickly. At the earliest opportunity, we enable families to meet their legal duty, secure in the knowledge that their child is understood and well supported. 

When there are specific problems with attendance, we take a carefully managed approach and seek to understand, encourage and support children to attend school every day. Future decisions about the need for enforcement measures are made on a case by case basis, recognising individual circumstances and always seeking to reduce absenteeism and maximise opportunities to attend school.

Our dedication to improving attendance is reflected in our comprehensive support systems and our commitment to understanding and addressing the unique needs of each student. Together, we strive to create a positive and inclusive school environment where every day truly counts.

National School Attendance Award

We are proud of the multiple National School Attendance Awards that we have achieved as a school.   These accomplishments would not have been possible without the unwavering support and dedication of our amazing families. Our families’ commitment to promoting good attendance among our students has played a significant role in achieving these remarkable recognitions.

By ensuring that their children attend school regularly, our families demonstrate a deep understanding of the importance of education and its lifelong impact. Regular school attendance has numerous benefits for children. It establishes a strong foundation for their academic success, fosters a sense of belonging within the school community and develops vital social and life skills. It is through partnership that we are able to provide a nurturing and consistent learning environment for our children.
