Every pupil has a fundamental right to full-time education. Pupils need to attend regularly if they are to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available and “to flourish – happily, confidently and with enthusiasm.” Irregular attendance undermines the educational process, as does poor punctuality. At Hipswell, 95% is the minimum acceptable attendance for all of our pupils.
