Academy Attendance

Dunston Primary and Nursery Academy is committed to providing an education of the highest quality for all our pupils.


We believe it is extremely important for pupils to attend regularly and on time. This will give them the best opportunity to progress and succeed at school.


Ensuring a child’s regular attendance at school is a parent / carer’s legal responsibility and permitting absence from school without a good reason may result in prosecution.


As an Early Years provider, parents / carers have decided to have their child registered as a pupil at our school.


We also monitor the attendance of our Nursery children as a means of embedding good attendance habits for the future.

This is also in line with our Nursery Funding Entitlement and Admissions Policy.
