Attendance at CHSG
We understand that all of our students and their families have been affected by the Covid pandemic and that we all continue to face challenges even though many of the restrictions have now been lifted.
The disruption to learning has been unprecedented and it is crucial that we continue to focus on ensuring all of our students attend school regularly. Research has shown there is a strong link between good attendance and excellent progress.
The information we have provided outlines our systems for supporting students and their families to ensure good attendance. We recognise attendance has been affected during the course of the pandemic and we want to work with all our students and parents to support and promote good attendance here at CHSG.
