Cross Gates Primary along with other Leeds schools are running a ‘Fast Track’ initiative in order to improve levels of attendance and punctuality. This initiative is to address attendance concerns quickly and efficiently. Students identified for the ‘Fast Track’ process will be monitored for a period of time.
Fast tracks place pupils on a structured programme with monitored periods giving the opportunity for improvement. Where unauthorised absence continues parents will be invited to attend a formal School Attendance Panel to discuss the reasons for poor attendance and to examine any support needs. Parents may be issued with a penalty warning letter and subsequently a penalty notice which incurs a fine for irregular school attendance if unauthorised absence persists.
