Hoyland Common Primary School seeks to ensure that all pupils receive a full- time education which maximises opportunities for each pupil to realise his/her potential. To achieve this, good attendance and punctuality are essential and school staff will work with pupils and their families to ensure that pupils attend school regularly and punctually.

To meet these objectives the school will strive to provide a welcoming, caring environment whereby each member of the school community feels wanted and secure, together with an effective system of communication with pupils, parents and appropriate agencies to provide mutual information, advice and support. This will be supported by strong links with other appropriate agencies.

The school wishes to encourage good time keeping and good attendance, whilst at the same time challenge the few parents who give low priority to attendance and punctuality.
