At High Halden School, we recognise the positive link between regular attendance, punctuality and high academic achievement.  We want all of our children to achieve their full academic potential and we believe this is only possible if they attend school regularly and on time.


Generally children whose attendance is 95% or above:

  • make better progress, both socially and academically
  • find it easier to follow school routines
  • have an easier transfer to secondary school. 


If your child is absent for any reason it is essential that you inform the school. 

The absence line number is: 01233 850285

Please remember to call in each day your child is away sick.


Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education. Pupils learn new things at school every day – missing school simply puts them behind and can hinder their life chances.
