P-05-807 Review and change the guidance for attendance awards in Welsh schools


This petition was submitted by Laura Charles-Price having collected 123 signatures.


Text of Petition

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to review any guidance it issues on school attendance awards in Wales.


Many children across Wales suffer with chronic illnesses that affect their school attendance. A child may miss school due to the illness itself or due to hospital appointments which they have to attend related to this illness.

Each year attendance awards are given out at school which many of these children miss out on.  Not only is this unfair but it also discriminates against those children.

I would like to propose that the Welsh Government either makes allowances for those children or advises local authorities and schools that attendance awards should not be given.
