Attendance Matters

Our attendance at the end of the autumn term was 95.1%.  
Our target is 95.9%

We hope that the children of Llansannor School are dedicated to their learning and are happy in school where they feel safe.  Please help by ensuring they come in every day on time.  The bell is rung in the playground at 8.55a.m..  Please note that children should not be left unattended on the yard before 8.45 a.m. when a member of staff will be on duty to greet them.


Punctuality is encouraged as it sets good standards for life and because valuable teaching time can be lost if children regularly miss the beginning of lessons.



It is quite acceptable to send your child to school with minor sniffles or colds, however, children showing signs of illness apart from colds should be kept home from school.  In the case of sickness and diarrhoea, children must be kept off school for 48 hours after the symptoms stop.  If a child becomes ill or has an accident in school, we will contact you immediately. For this reason, we ask that you supply the school with up-to-date contact details.  In cases where a doctor has diagnosed an illness as highly infectious, the school must be informed immediately.


The school can only authorise absences for illness, dental or medical appointments, bereavement of a relative or religious observance.  The school must be told in advance of these requests or, in the case of illness, on the first morning of absence.


If your child is ill from school for medical reasons, please contact the office as soon as possible on the first day of absence. You may register your child’s absence by leaving a message on our answer machine (01443 223545) or by email to


Parents do not have the right to take their children out of school for a holiday during term time, but you can request in writing permission from the headteacher, Mrs Prosser, who has the discretion over whether to approve your request. 


If your child has a consistent attendance level of only 90% during their schooling, they will have lost a whole year of education before they start their GCSE years!
