Is my child too ill for school?

The Lady Byron School works with parents and carers to ensure that students enjoy coming to school.

Attendance is a high priority for The Lady Byron School, we aim to have all students in school all the time. We understand that students are sometimes ill and will need to stay at home however, we will always work with students, parents and carers to ensure there is every chance of your child attending school every day.

All staff work with parents to ensure that every young person can reach their potential by attending school regularly. We are committed to supporting you in getting your young person into school, on time and ready to learn.

Our Senior Leadership Team at The Lady Byron School, monitors attendance of students and their punctuality. If you would like to speak any member of the team about your student’s attendance, you can ring the school or contact them via the office e-mail.
