St. Mary's C of E Primary School promotes the view that regular attendance is important to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for children. It is the responsibility of the whole school community to ensure good attendance. Persistent absence is defined as absence below 90%.
It is concerning to us if a child's attendance is below 95%, the Education Welfare Officer will therefore monitor attendance below 95%.
As a school we are committed to:
- Improving the attendance of our pupils
- Improving the punctuality of pupils
- Raising levels of achievement
- Maximising opportunities for children in school
