Plantsbrook School is committed to maximising the attendance of every student during their education so that they can be the best that they can be. Regular attendance at school is linked to success in all aspects of school life.

We work with Instill Excellence Ltd to support the day-to-day objectives of raising overall attendance levels and reducing persistent absenteeism. All attendance advice provided by Instill Excellence Ltd will be from an experienced consultant who will provide professional and comprehensive casework advice. The scope of the Attendance Consultancy service includes telephone communication and home visits to complete safe and well checks with pupils and families.

Parents who are concerned about their child’s attendance should contact school to tell them about the difficulties.


It is important that you contact the school on every day that your child is absent.
