Attendance

Attendance Lead: Beverley Riddle

Link Governor: Steve Howse

We take attendance very seriously at Morton Trentside Primary School. We believe that children learn best when they attend school every day and we work hard to ensure that this happens. 

 

We will be able to support you if you are experiencing any problems supporting your child to come to school every day. Please speak to Mrs Riddle in person, via the school office contact information found here or by emailing her directly at beverley.riddle@mortontrentside.lincs.sch.uk.
