Article 12: Every child has the right to have a say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.
We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting School Award puts children's rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
We aim to be a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents and nurtured and they are able to thrive.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life at Oscott Manor School and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
The Pastoral Manager monitors attendance daily. They will make telephone calls to parents of those pupils who are not in school, even if they have reported the absence already. We will conduct home visits to absent pupils in order to support children and families and check on the safety and well-being of those who are unable to attend. This is in line with national and local statutory guidance.
Pupils’ attendance can be affected due to illness, anxiety and other issues and school works closely with parents and other professionals to improve attendance and uses the "Spotlight" programme only after other support mechanisms have been exhausted.
