Attendance & School Uniform

School Attendance

At The Old Priory school we cater for a total of 30 students, although the number on role can vary.


We expect our students to have excellent attendance and punctuality and through support and guidance from all staff involved in the young person’s life, we aim to achieve this.


Where students have a record of poor attendance or erratic educational experience we tailor a transition programme to enable the young person the best chance of succeeding with us and engaging in education.

During the current pandemic there are understandable concerns around children residing in social care and the ability of social care organisations to provide continuity of service.


Based on all available government advice and guidance, and following a review of our current resources, Ethelbert Children’s Services have shared a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan (BCP) with each of its local authority partners and relevant regulatory bodies.


At this time, we do not foresee any significant difficulties in providing ongoing residential care and/or fostering services.


As new information and guidance becomes available, will be reviewing our BCP and updating our partners accordingly.


Should you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
