Attendance & Punctuality

Regular attendance at school is vital to help children to achieve and get the best possible start in life. Children who frequently miss school often fall behind. There is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving good results.

In our school we do everything we possibly can to help your child achieve their full potential and succeed in the future. Part of that is keeping you well informed.

Each half-term, we are sending home an “Attendance Awareness” slip to inform you about your child’s attendance. Please, take it on board and help us to help your child get THE BEST start in life!

1) Names of all children with 97% and above attendance are entered into a draw, where each half-term, one child wins a Smyths Toys Store voucher.


2) We also reward children for arriving to school on time (8.50am). A cup is awarded, weekly, to a class with the least number of lates.
