From the first day of term to the last, the small moments in a school day make a real
difference to your child.  Attendance counts.

At Rose Hill we believe that face-to-face education is important in helping pupils to fulfil their potential.  During school time we believe pupils should be in class with their teachers and peers and enjoying all the benefits that brings.  

Parents or carers of a child have a legal responsibility to ensure their child receives a suitable education.  This is usually achieved through regular attendance at school. 

Rose Hill strives for every pupil to achieve 100% attendance throughout the school year.  

If you are struggling with getting your child to school for any reason, please contact the pastoral team at  pastoral@rosehill.stockport.sch.uk and we will be happy to support you and your child with any barriers to their attendance.  

Please visit www.nhs.uk/live-well/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school if you are unsure whether your child is well enough to come into school.

Why is it important to have good attendance?

                Days off school = lost learning time.

Being late also adds up to a loss of learning.

  • If your child is 5 minutes late every day, that adds up to over 3 days lost over each year.
  • 10 minutes late every day adds up to over 6 lost days each year.
  • 15 minutes late is the same as being absent 2 weeks each year.

Does your child worry about going to school?
