Our Attendance

Good attendance is essential for children’s educational development and their personal growth, it is vital in ensuring that children are equipped with the appropriate life skills that are so importantly needed for them to succeed. Here at Bentley New Village we appreciate the unique difficulties that parents and carers face in regards to having good attendance and we take pride in supporting families with these difficulties and support them with addressing any barriers they may face. We embrace positive attitudes towards attendance and as a school we aim to promote this through our staff and our school ethos.

We place such importance in our school due to its direct link towards safeguarding and well-being. Rarely is attendance a simple matter but is made up of complex individual circumstances that require a school to offer support, understanding and guidance which we consistently offer at New Village.
