The one overriding factor that leads to success at school is attending everyday.

If a child misses lessons it not only disrupts their own education but detracts from that of others. Lateness has a very similar effect and is poor preparation for the world of work. 

Viewforth High School promotes good attendance and punctuality to ensure that all our young people perform well.

In past years the target has been to see each pupil at least twice during the year and with the possibility for a third tracking and target setting meeting for pupils taking National 5 or Highers.

It is clear from their feedback that the pupils value these conversations and I would envisage them continuing.
