Enough is Enough

All that seems to matter to headteachers at the minute is their attendance records. The attendance policy at my son's school frankly seems to me to be a disguised form of bullying. Children are given a certificate each term for full attendance but this is withheld if they have been ill, on holiday or even 5 minutes late. At primary school it is the parents who decide whether a child attends school or not so why punish the child? Two of my friends children were distraught at the thought of letting their friends down because their clas may not get the best attendance that week if they were off sick. I really think this has gone too far.
