St Andrew's

Church of England Primary School

Attendance & Punctuality

For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential.  At St Andrew’s we consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all children.

The school continues to monitor the attendance of children regularly. We contact parents of all absent children. 

An unauthorised absence is one for which the school does not receive any notification or explanation from a parent or guardian in writing, by verbal message or by telephone.

It is important that your child arrives on time every day. Lateness effects your child’s education so please make sure that they arrive at school on time.

Five minutes late each day adds up to 3 days missed from school over a year. 15 minutes late adds up to missing 2 weeks over a year!

Being late adds up to a lot of lost learning time. Please help your child to be punctual.
