» Parents » Attendance
Regular school attendance is considered to be of great importance at Ysgol Bro Preseli.
Without it, all our efforts to provide high-quality education come to nothing; if a child is not present at school they cannot learn or reach their true potential. For these reasons, we discourage parents from taking their children on holiday during term time. We aim to have the maximum attendance rates possible for our pupils.
There will, of course, be just and valid reasons why pupils cannot attend school on occasions, but we have systems in place to monitor and investigate absences across the school. The school Attendance Policy outlines our practice and procedures for maintaining a high level of pupil attendance.
If your child is absent even for one day, please contact 01239 831000.
