At Grimes Dyke we are working very hard to improve our standards of attendance across the whole school. Our attendance target is 96% and we are continuing to introduce exciting approaches to encourage excellent attendance.There will be a number of additional incentives for children to attend running throughout the year. Excellent attendance in school is vital in ensuring children are able to achieve their full potential.

Below is a chart which details the impact absence has across different timeframes. At Grimes Dyke we are aiming for all children to achieve 96% and above.
