Vange Primary School And Nursery


If your child is unable to attend school, please either call the school office - 01268 552 160 - or email 

Vange Primary School expects every child to attend school regularly, on time and properly equipped and ready to learn. 


We believe that children can only learn effectively if they attend school regularly. It is important too, that children arrive and leave school on time. It is equally important that children should not be at school if they are unwell.

  • Vange Primary School will encourage good attendance and will communicate with Parents as soon as possible if there is a problem with attendance or punctuality.
  •  Vange Primary School staff will set a good example in matters of attendance and punctuality and will promptly investigate all absenteeism and lateness.
  • Vange Primary School will work in partnership with parents and each child to resolve issues which affect attendance or punctuality, as quickly as possible.
  • Vange Primary School will include in the individual yearly reports to parents on achievement their child’s attendance levels.

 Further information regarding attendance may be found in our Attendance Policy

At Vange Primary School we expect all our children to attend at least 96% of the time to achieve good attendance. 

This is the benchmark set by Ofsted and schools are judged against it on inspections. 

The Local Authority Attendance Team have published a guide to Learning Hours Lost detailing the impact on learning that poor attendance can have.
