Attendance at Hawthorn  

We work hard at Hawthorn to achieve good attendance and punctuality for all our pupils and have robust systems to support in improving attendance, taking in to consideration the individual circumstances of each of our pupils. As a school we work with parents to overcome barriers that impact on attendance and punctuality and if needed, support through an Early Help approach.Our procedure for attendance is outlined in detail in our Attendance Policy found as  a PDF document below. Paper copies can be requested at the main school office.

How we celebrate attendance at Hawthorn

Say hello to our new Hawthorn Bears. We have two new bears, one for KS1 and one for KS2. The class with the best attendance for the week will win a bear to look after for the week.



Congratulations to the pupils that were able to attend school for 100%, 99% and 98% of the Summer Term 2022-2023. Our attendance figure for 2022-2023 was 93.4%
