After carrying out significant research, the Welsh Government is placing strong emphasis on improving attendance levels in all schools.


The research carried out clearly shows that the more regularly a child attends school, the more they will learn and achieve. The Welsh Government challenges all pupils to attend for at least 97% of the school year. This would mean that they have no more than 6 days off from school each year.


At Gladstone we are committed to providing your child with the best possible education and ensuring they achieve to the best of their ability. Please support us with this by making sure your child attends school on time and every day.


We monitor attendance very closely and will write to you if we have a concern. We appreciate that there may be reasons behind low attendance such as authorised holidays or authorised medical appointments which will be taken into account. 


If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s attendance please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Reilly at school, who will be pleased to offer support and advice.
