Lots of reasons to go to school.

NEWCASTLE City Council's education welfare service has put together its top tips to help parents who are struggling to get their child to school.

Here are some examples: * Don't let your child stay off for reasons like going shopping, birthdays, minding the house or looking after brothers and sisters.

Try to avoid taking family holidays in term time. * Try to make non-urgent medical and dental appointments out of school time.

Help by packing schoolbags the night before and keeping an eye on homework progress.

Tired children aren't punctual and find it hard to learn, so ensure children have a sensible bedtime. * Help children get into a routine and set the alarm at the same time every morning.

Make time for breakfast so there is no stopping at shops where children can get side-tracked.

If your child recovers from illness before the end of the week, send them back to school even if it's only for one day.
