At Wood Bank we recognise the importance of all our children regularly attending school to access a full time education.

Whole School Attendance Average 2019-20


Attendance figures are monitored throughout the year by our Family Liaison Officer and shared with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors.  Where the attendance of individual children falls below expectation, we work both with families and in some circumstances the
