We have launched an Attendance Charter for all schools in Hastings & St Leonards to sign up to. The aim is that all schools in Hastings will have a shared approach and common expectations on Attendance. This includes a common approach across all schools to lateness, taking term time holidays and when action will be taken for those families whose children are persistently absent from school. 

Launched in June 2019, we will bring schools together in November 2019 to review its
impact and we will hold an event in the Summer to celebrate those schools, families and pupils who have made improvements in or who have sustained good attendance over time.
