The school’s attendance percentage is generally at the 96% level, a reflection we think of the fact that Appleton children actually want to be at school.
In the event of a pupil’s absence from school, parents are requested to telephone the school prior to the start of school, or at least by 9.30 am, in order to provide a reason for the absence.
In line with our policy of safeguarding children the school office may ring you after that time if you have not been able to contact us.
In view of the requirements National Curriculum timetable and National Curriculum testing procedures and time-tables, parents are asked not to arrange holidays during term-time as this can affect a child’s progress significantly.

Each week we have a special assembly where we look at our attendance percentages for the week. The winning class look after the special attendance trophy and receive a special £5 Bank of Appleton cheque. These cheques will be added up over the year and the winning class will be able to spend their money on a treat of their choice.
