At Southwark, we believe that it is vital that children are in school on time, every day.

Children who attend school every day are more likely to:

  • Make more academic progress
  • Leave school with higher academic levels
  • Develop socially and emotionally, making strong friendships with their peers.

To give our children the best chances and opportunities, they must be in school. We will work tirelessly to get the children into school but we can only do it with your help and commitment.
