At Lionel Walden Primary School, we expect all children on roll to attend, when the school is in session, as long as they are fit and healthy enough to do so. 
Children need to be in school every day in order to fulfil their potential.  At Lionel Walden Primary School, we do all that we can to encourage children to attend and put into place appropriate procedures to support attendance when necessary.
We believe that the most important factor in promoting good attendance is the development of positive attitudes towards school.  To this end, we strive to make our school a happy and rewarding experience for all children.  We will also make the best provision we can for those children who, for whatever reason, are prevented from coming to school.
