Kings Heath Boys believes that punctual and regular school attendance is an essential precondition of social inclusion and a prerequisite to effective learning.
The school is committed to ensuring that all students attend school regularly. Regular school attendance is vital if students are to benefit from the experiences which the school offers them; we believe that students should attend school regularly because this is where they learn and this is where they are safe. Employers and other reference seekers value attendance and punctuality as an indicator of reliability; in an ever-competitive world it is crucial that our students are equipped to compete with others by having outstanding attendance and punctuality.
Frequent absence and lateness can add up to a considerable amount of lost learning and can seriously disadvantage a pupil.
