Attendance and Punctuality

Regular attendance is a vital part of student welfare.  Our aim is for students at Hautlieu to have an outstanding attendance record of at least 96%.  In order to best ensure the welfare of students at Hautlieu, attendance is checked every morning and afternoon for every student and contact is made with parents and carers where there is non-attendance.

In order to support Hautlieu, we ask that parents or carers contact us by 8:30am by telephone: 736242 or using the contact form below with Subject “Attendance”.

You can view your child’s attendance record at any time by logging on to the Go4Schools Platform. The QR code below will take you to the Go4Schools website and the videos will take you through the logging on process and how to interpret the records.
