At Bentley New Village Primary School, we believe all pupils should value their education and demonstrate this passion through excellent attendance; pupils should rarely miss a day. To succeed and meet their potential, children should not be disadvantaged by low attendance or poor punctuality.

Every child has the right to an education and an excellent education begins with coming to school every day.

Bentley New Village Primary School aims to have ALL pupils attending regularly and punctually.  Parents and Carers need to know and understand that, should their children fail to attend school, then the matter will be referred to the Attendance Manager and Education Welfare Service.  All Doncaster schools are operating a prosecution system in cooperation with the Attendance and Welfare Service and that in conjunction with Doncaster Council schools are operating Fixed Penalty Notices for non-attendance.
