South View Primary


We aim for all our children to have excellent attendance. 
  • All pupils of statutory school age have an equal right to access an education in accordance with the National Curriculum regulations.
  • No pupil should be deprived of their opportunity to receive an education that meets their needs and personal development.
  • It is the legal responsibility of parents to ensure attendance at school.
  • Pupils and their parents/carers may need to be supported at some stage to meet their attendance obligations and responsibilities.
  • Situations beyond the control of pupils and/or parents/carers may impact on attendance. The School will, with the agreement and support of parents, work in partnership with external agencies to resolve these.
  • The vast majority of pupils want to attend school to learn, to socialise with their peer group and to prepare themselves fully to take their place in society as well-rounded and responsible citizens with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to contribute to the life and culture of their communities.
