Attendance

It is every parent's duty to ensure that, if their child is of school age, they attend school regularly.  

Perth & Kinross Council is committed to working in partnership with parents, children and other stakeholders to ensure that, wherever possible, all children enrolled in our schools receive an education that maximises the opportunity for each child to achieve his/her potential.

In working towards this, Perth & Kinross Council Education & Children's Services' icon Raising Achievement Strategy [595Kb] expects all schools to closely monitor the attendance of all children and young people. 

Our staff in school work with pupils and their families to ensure that pupils attend regularly and punctually.

If you are having problems with your child's attendance at school you should discuss this with the school in the first instance.
