Lesson 5


Attendance at school is so important for the development of not only your child’s academic progress but also for the emotional development.  It is where they learn to work as part of a team and how to interact socially with both peers and older members of society.  It is where they develop the life skills to really excel in life after their school days are over.

The Welsh Government have attendance requirements which mean that all pupils should maintain at least a 95% attendance at school.  New regulations recently implemented count pupils with lesson than 90% attendance as “Persistent Absentee pupil”, this can lead to fines and even end up in court.

It is of vital importance that school and home work together as a team to encourage regular attendance at school.  School offers rewards associated with regular attendance to encourage pupils into the classroom, parents can regularly check Class charts and give encouragement and praise when pupils are getting rewards.

An explanation for all absences must be given, whatever the duration. It is essential that the school be informed of any absence, either by telephone or email, at once. No explanation will result in an unauthorised absence being recorded.

Morning registration will be taken in lesson 1 – pupils must make every effort to be punctual for the start of the day. Late arrivals are recorded. Pupils arriving after 8.35am must sign in at CAREDIG.

Minutes and days off school add up to lost learning


School rules and behaviour expectations

Cefn Saeson has 2 overarching principles that should be consistently followed by pupils and staff. These principles are outlined in our ‘Code of Behaviour’. Failure to comply with our behaviour code will result in sanctions.

School uniform

All school uniform must be purchased from Sportec Embroidery.

A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students and anyone arriving at school in non-uniform clothing may expect to be sent home to get changed. Fashion trends will not be accommodated.

The school, through the local Education Department, makes allowances to some pupils attending school, subject to eligibility by assessment, towards the cost of distinctive school clothing.

Parents seeking further advice on this matter may contact the School Office.


Parents are expected to encourage pupils to observe acceptable standards in dress and appearance. Hair should be a sensible length, style and colour. Vision must not be impeded by hair. Make-up must not be worn in school, and neither should hair cosmetics be used, especially in the Science Laboratories and Technology Workshops.


The only jewellery which may be worn in school is one small plain stud in the lobe of each ear.

No Facial Jewellery of any kind is acceptable as it contravenes our school’s health and safety risk assessments.

When pupils are found wearing either multiple earrings in the ear or facial jewellery they will be asked to remove it and hand it to the teacher.  Failure to comply will result firstly in attendance at the pupil inclusion Centre and can ultimately lead to exclusion from school.


It should be clearly understood that all items of personal property are brought on to the school premises at the owner’s risk. The school cannot be held responsible for any losses incurred and no claims for reimbursement for any losses sustained will be entertained.


Cefn Saeson practices a strong no-mobile phone policy. It is strongly recommended that mobile phones be left at home. The school cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage to such equipment.  If a pupil’s phone is seen it will be confiscated and held in a secure place until the end of the day.  If the pupil is found to regularly use their phone in school parents will be asked to come and retrieve the phone and have a meeting with the head of year to discuss the issue.
