Attendance

At Sale High School we are dedicated to working with students and their families to secure excellent punctuality and attendance. National average attendance is 95% and we are work hard to ensure that wherever possible our student’s attendance is in line with or exceeding this figure. We believe that regular school attendance is the key to enabling young people to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults.


Every day a student misses school, a total of five hours of learning is lost and whilst we understand that illness can’t always be avoided, just a few days of absence can have a huge impact on a child’s attendance figure and their education as a whole.
