At Edward Peake we expect high standards of attendance and punctuality. The attendance target for this year is 96% and we hope to better this. We reward high attendance through a house completion and with class awards. We recognise that at times absence is unavoidable however in cases of prolonged absence; 5 school days or more we expect medical evidence to be provided. This can be in the form of an appointment slip from the doctor or other medical professional, or a copy of a prescription to show that a visit to the doctor has occurred. It is important that we are aware of any medical issues so that we can offer the best possible support in school.
