Aspiration, Application, Achievement
Brynmawr Foundation School operates the Callio Attendance system. Regardless of the reasons for absence you will receive a letter every half term informing you of your child’s attendance within the Callio banding:
GOLD - 100%
GREEN – Above 97%
AMBER – Between 92% and 97%
RED- Below 93%
Red attendees are monitored for two weeks following the letters and should your child’s attendance continue to fall during this time a red plus letter will be issued. If there is still no improvement you will be required to attend the school for a meeting with the attendance team. If you do receive a request it is vitally important that you attend.
