At Epping Upland, we believe in developing good patterns of attendance and set high expectations for the attendance and punctuality for all our pupils from the outset. It is a central part of our school’s vision, values, ethos, and day to day life. We recognise the connections between attendance, attainment, safeguarding and wellbeing

Helping to create a pattern of regular attendance is the responsibility of parents, pupils and all members of school staff. To help us all to focus on this we will:

  • Weekly monitoring of attendance
  • Send letters home where attendance is below 95% 
  • Meet with parents/carers who are struggling to get their child into school
  • Work closely with the Educational Welfare Service to support families who might struggle to get their children into school on time or on a regular basis.
  • Work closely with the Local Authority to reduce term time holidays and irregular attendance.

For further and more detailed information, a copy of the school's Attendance policy can be found under the Policies tab of the website.
