We understand that of course children will be ill at times and not be able to come to school. Take a look at the links below for advice on whether your child should be kept off school and also ways to support their health at home. 

A true partnership between home and school is vital to good attendance and we appreciate your support.

At Cliftonville Primary School we expect good attendance and punctuality.   Our aim is for 100% attendance and punctuality. We believe that:

Mrs Saddington and Mrs Hasson are our Education Attendance Officers.  You will see them at the Wellbeing hub house every morning from 8.40am - 9.10am if your child is late or you need to talk to them or member of the pastoral team.  There is lots we have on offer to support families with improving attendance, so please do pop along for a chat. 


We set a very high bar for attendance because we want the very best for your child.  If, despite the outstanding support we provide, your child does not attend regularly and on time we will have to issue a Penalty Notice fines for unauthorised absence.


If you need to contact the attendance officers, Mrs Hasson or Mrs Saddington, regarding your child you can now email them directly at
