Ashperton Primary Academy

Welcome toAshperton Primary Academy


The importance of academic success is attributed to good attendance. We fully understand that there are times when children feel unwell and are not able to attend school. 

If your child is unwell and you would like guidance to decide whether or not to keep your child off school, please see guidance below from the NHS: Is my child too ill for school?


There are also government guidelines for schools about managing specific infectious. These say when children should be kept off school and when they shouldn't. If your child is well enough to go to school but has an infection that could be passed on, such as a cold sore or head lice, let their teacher know. 

Guidance on infection control


Some examples off illness are below:

Coughs and colds - Children can come to school with a minor cough or common cold. But if they have a fever, keep them off school until the fever has gone. 

High temperature -  If your child has a high temperature, keep them off school until the high temperature has gone.

Chickenpox - If your child has chickenpox, keep them off school until all the spots have crusted over. 

Slapped cheek - You don't need to keep your child off school because once the rash appears, they're no longer infectious. Let school or your child's teacher know if you think your child has slapped cheek syndrome.


Often attendance is reviewed in percentages.

The table above breaks down the percentages of attendance and how many days/hours are lost in just 1 academic year.
