Absence / Attendance
If your child is ill please phone the school office on 0121 472 1238 on the first morning of illness. If we do not hear from you we will phone to see why your child is not at school.
If your child is taken ill during the school day we will phone the contact number provided. Please ensure that if your contact details change, the school is informed.
Regular attendance is seen as very important at Selly Park. Every opportunity is taken by the staff to encourage all pupils to come to school regularly. Parents are contacted by telephone or by letter if their daughters are away from school for an unknown reason. Parents are asked to inform the school in writing if their daughter is to be away from school. On the first day of absence, parents are asked to telephone the Attendance Secretary explaining the reason for their daughter’s absence.
We have a designated pastoral team who work closely with our families and support them with attendance concerns.
We have continued with our initiatives to improve pupil attendance and we are happy to report that attendance rates have continued to improve.
