Attendance at Denbigh High School is a priority for pupils. We ensure that students are fully aware of the positive correlation between attendance and achievement. Students have both a morning and afternoon registration with their form tutors. Each form takes part in the interform attendance leagues, with prizes issued termly to the winning classes, and those students with 100% attendance. We celebrate the attendance of students regularly, and inform parents too.
The school has an Attendance Officer who will contact you if your child is absent. Our Attendance Officer works closely with the Education Welfare Officer to ensure that students are in school, and ready to learn.
The school does not authorise any time off for holidays, or extended visits out of the country. Again, this is to ensure that students learning potential is maximised, as is their achievement.
