Your child’s education is very important.

Regular, punctual school attendance and a good education

help them to fulfill their potential and give them the best possible chances in life.



At Okehampton Primary School we monitor children’s attendance and liaise with our school Education Welfare Officer.

We work closely with families with low attendance or where non-attendance  follows a pattern.


Children who are persistently late or absent soon fall behind with their learning. Children who are absent from school frequently develop large gaps in their learning  which will impact on their progress and their ability to meet age related learning expectations.
