Pentland Infant and Nursery School regards regular attendance at school as essential in ensuring the best possible learning outcomes for all children. Regular attendance at school is necessary to promote better life chances now and in the future. Our school’s ethos encourages children to feel that their presence in school is important and that they are missed when they are absent or late. We aim for school life to be happy and interesting, so that children want to attend every day. 

There is a clear link between good attendance and high standards. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and every child should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
