At Goffs we believe that attending school regularly is one of the foundations of successful learning helping to prepare students for the world of work and adult life. We therefore expect every student to attend school and to be punctual. Parents have a legal obligation to ensure that their child gets to school every day and on time, unless the reason for the absence in unavoidable. Permitting absence from school without good reason creates an offence in law and may result in prosecution.
Students who have not attended school for a considerable period of time are integrated back into the normal school routine via the Learning Plus Centre. They will also benefit from the support of outside agencies where appropriate.
