We expect the highest attendance and punctuality from all of our pupils, at all times. We support pupils and their families to ensure that excellent attendance is achieved. North Yorkshire Local Authority’s target for attendance is 97%;

At Woodfield, we are continuously working towards this target and  our ultimate goal of 100% attendance for everyone. Absence in term time affects your child’s learning and personal and social development!

Expected School Attendance


Central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfill their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.
