Attendance and Punctuality

Good attendance is important because:

  • Regular and punctual attendance is essential for effective learning.

  • Statistics show a direct link between under-achievement and attendance below 96%.

  • Regular attenders make better progress, both socially and academically.

  • Regular attenders find school routines, school work and friendships easier to cope with.

  • Regular attenders find learning more satisfying.

  • Regular attenders are more successful in transferring between primary school, secondary school, and higher education, employment or training

 

We place great importance on attendance and monitor attendance daily. Attendance has a high profile within our school and we recognise and reward good and improved attendance.

Look in our weekly newsletter for our latest attendance figures.

Our current attendance is above 97%
