Family Engagement at Ynysboeth

Family Engagement Officers are employed by schools to tackle inequality and absence issues, helping provide support to children and families and fostering positive relationships between schools and families.

Pupils who miss school, for whatever reason, miss out on so much. Not only does it affect school attendance, it also affects school attainment – and can prove costly to parents, young people and carers.

Ynysboeth Community Primary School has a duty to ensure that children in our school attend school whenever possible.

Did you know that.....

· 80% attendance means your child misses a whole year of education over five years

· 85% attendance means that 29 school days, six weeks, or 145 lessons are missed over a year

· 90% attendance means 19 school days, four weeks or 95 lessons are missed over a year

Taking pupils out of school is an Attendance and Wellbeing Service issue and we are required to keep records and take further action if required. If there are any problems, please let us know and we will do what we can to help.

Ms. Weatherill is available Monday-Friday 8.30am-2.30pm, to support all students and families with any concerns or issues they may have. Contact detail are: Email:
