Attendance policy/ Penalty notice

At Cadle, Attendance is one of our key priorities as a school and we are reviewing attendance strategies termly and hope to work together with parents and children to enable the pupils to get the best attendance possible and to be the best that they can be.  We have monthly Attendance Rewards, Class Attendance Rewards and individual attendance prizes. Pupils who attain 100% each term are entered into a termly draw to win a voucher of their choice up to £20.00. Pupils have chosen Go-Air Vouchers/Smyths Toyshop Vouchers/X box Vouchers/Pizza Express Vouchers.  Classes who have high attendance also receive a class treat accordingly. 

Please see our Attendance Policy listed below and our Holiday request form which must be completed for any requests for term time holidays or days where you child will not be attending school.  Please note that the majority of Holidays requested are unauthorised but individual circumstances are considered in each case. Holiday Forms are located in the main School Foyer.

Statement for school website

The Education (Penalty Notices) (Wales) Regulations 2013 introduced fixed notice penalties for regular non-attendance at school.

The Welsh Government has required all local authorities to draw up and implement their own Local Codes of Conduct to ensure consistency in the issuing of penalty notices. The code will be implemented in Swansea from January, 2015.

The Welsh Government states that penalty notices are one option among a number of different interventions available to promote better school attendance. The introduction of these regulations is one part of the Welsh Government strategy to support improved school attendance across Wales.


The introduction of these regulations mean that parents may now be fined for their child(ren)’s regular non-attendance at school.

The local code of conduct, which explains how penalty notices will operate, is available on the Swansea Council website On the website the local authority has also provided answers to some frequently asked questions. Parents/carers will also receive explanatory letters and information leaflets from their child’s school in January, 2015.  If any parent has concerns about their child/s attendance, then please speak to staff in school for advice and support.
