We are pleased to announce that Rivacre Valley is introducing a new, more efficient and secure system for reporting your child/children's absence due to illness, called Studybugs. If you haven’t already, please get the free Studybugs app, or register on the Studybugs website and use it to tell us whenever your child’s ill and unable to attend school. Please follow the link to register your child/children  ( Please ensure you notify school on the first day of your child's absence. (If we don't hear from you or can't contact you, your child will be entered onto the system as an unauthorised absence. Any more than 10 missed sessions could incur a Fixed Penalty Notice).

Please allow Plenty of time for children to be punctual for registration

                                                                                    A rrive on time so your child does not miss out.

                                                                                    T ell school on the first day of absence why your child cannot attend.

                                                                                    T ime missed is difficult to catch up.

                                                                                    E ducation is important.

                                                                                    N ote school procedures and follow them.

                                                                                    D o not take holidays during term time.

                                                                                    A ttendance awards are celebrated weekly and termly.

                                                                                    N on-attendance will be followed up legally.

                                                                                    C hildren's full attendance is important for their future.

                                                                                    E ducation will help your child reach their full potential.


Lateness = Lost Learning

(figures below are calculated over a school year)

                              5 minutes late each day = 3 days lost!                                

10 minutes late each day = 6.5 days lost!

15 minutes late each day = 10 days lost!

20 minutes late each day = 13 days lost!

30 minutes late each day = 19 days lost!

As few as 19 missed days over the school year reduces thier chances of success. Their SATs results could drop by one grade across all subjects.

The question of attendance requires a partnership between parent/carers and school, with shared responsibility. Parent/Carers are primarily responsible for ensuring that children attend school, and it is the responsibility of the school to support attendance and to take seriusly problems which may lead to non-attendance.


  • Under existing legislation parent/carers commit an offence if a child fails to attend school regulary.
  • Without notification to school on the first day of absnce, attendance will be recorded as unauthorised.
  • If unauthorised non-attendance continues this will result in a fixed penalty noticxe being served.
  • Depending on circumstances such cases may result in prosecution under section 444 if the Education Act 1996.‚Äč 

We would like to thank parents/carers for you continued support.
