Children who miss out on their learning miss out on future life chances.
The school is committed to ensuring a high rate of attendance for all. We expect children to have a 96% attendance rate over each school year.
We ask all parents to inform the school before 9.00am on the first day of absence and to send a letter to the class teacher on the day their child returns from absence.
The Office will phone/contact parents on the same day of absence if the parent has not contacted the school.
Repeated or unexplained absences will be followed up by our Attendance Advisory Practitioner - so it is important to keep school informed.
Children are asked to be punctual. The register will be taken at 8.50am. . Lateness and absence will be noted on the child’s Annual School Report.
St Johns staff are committed to children’s learning and wellbeing.
