Our aim at Highters Heath Community School is to provide the greatest opportunity for children’s learning. We endeavour to provide all our pupils with an equal chance to make the most of the education that school offers, by providing a positive and encouraging atmosphere. For this to be achieved, it is vital that every child attends school regularly and punctually.

Parents have a legal responsibility to ensure their children attend school regularly. However, the school recognises that problems may occasionally occur which affect this. Through working in partnership with parents, we can find solutions to problems together and ensure children’s right to a full education.

Attendance is published weekly on our attendance board in the main school hall, which shows the attendance percentage for the week and also on the front page of the school website.
