We encourage a high level of attendance and punctuality at Unstone Schools Federation.
Regular attendance at school is vital for children's education. We have an Attendance Monitoring System which we use in school and if we feel there is a problem with your child's attendance or punctuality you will be contacted. This way any problems you may have can be sorted out before it becomes a major issue.
Unauthorised absences are followed up by the school and persistent cases are followed up by the Education Welfare Officer.
Derbyshire County Council may issue fixed penalty notices where unauthorised absences occurs.
