Attendance is at the very core of REACH School, if we do not attend we cannot expect to achieve. With good attendance students can expect to receive a full-time education which maximises their opportunities and realise his/her true potential, supporting the raising of standards of achievement.

Within school we actively discuss and promote attendance on a regular basis with all students ensuring they understand the benefits of good attendance. Attending that school not only benefits them academically, but has a positive impact on their physical, emotional and social development as well. We adopt a rewards system to benefit those that have good attendance and engage those that may need support. For students that do need a little encouragement we offer a range of support systems to help get them back on track.

We strive to build positive relationships with all parents and carers as your support is vital to our success. We will be in constant contact to discuss not just the negatives but the positive successes your child achieves.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school. Staff will work hard to support all students to access their education. We utilise the benefits of being a small, close knit school to develop positive relationships and work dynamically with students to support them through their day.

We will endeavour to provide a welcoming, caring environment, whereby all students thrive and work with students and families to enable each student to attend REACH School regularly and punctually.

All parents and carers have a legal responsibility to ensure their child is attending school.

REACH school uses Birmingham City Councils Fast Track process to take legal action against the parents/carers of those with poor attendance.
