At The Salendine Nook High School we know that good attendance matters. Our target for pupils is at least 98%.

Pupils who have good attendance: achieve better results, make better friendships and have improved self-esteem and confidence. We value parents’ support in ensuring their children attend school every day and get the most out of their opportunities and time in school. Whilst we understand that there are occasions when students will have medical conditions that will cause absence, we are keen to promote resilience to minor ailments, such as colds and sore throats, whenever possible. We know that time spent with the high quality staff in lessons is invaluable.

Your support is vital. The school has a dedicated team who are happy to discuss any concerns or problems you may have regarding attendance. Feel free to contact Miss Banks or Mrs Barnett and we will be pleased to help.
