We know that good attendance results in good learning and we encourage children to attend school at all times. If your child is absent or late please contact the school in the morning as early as possible, before 9.30am. We reward children with 100% attendance with stickers, certificates and prizes. Holidays during term time will now be classed as unauthorised. 

Please read the following attendance statistics:

100% - full attendance

90% - half a day off school a week

80% - 1 day off school a week

70% - 1 ½ days off school a week

60% - 2 days off school a week

50% - 2 ½ days off school a week


Poor attendance leads to poor Literacy and Numeracy levels.

Please give your child the best start in life by ensuring they are in school every day.

Can we please remind you of the school start time which is 8.50 a.m. it is important that your child is at school on time daily, otherwise a late mark will be given to your child and this will affect their overall attendance which could result in a visit from the Education Welfare Officer (EWO).
