Attendance and Punctuality

At St Michael’s Catholic Primary School we believe that good attendance nurtures our pupils academically, socially and emotionally. In order for children to maximise their learning opportunities it is vital that your child attends school every day. The school’s attendance target for this academic year is 97% and we implement a `traffic light system’ to signpost attendance levels to parents/carers and children.

 

Pupil’s attendance is monitored on a daily basis and we have weekly, termly and yearly awards to celebrate excellent attendance. Every week we celebrate each class' attendance in an Awards assembly by looking at our attendance league.We also work with School Health and Education Welfare to support your child if their attendance becomes a cause of concern. Over the last 3 years our attendance has been above the national average and this is thanks to the wonderful support of our parents and carers and the amazing attitude of our pupils. See Twitter for a regular update of our whole school attendance.

Punctuality

 

It is important that your child arrives in school on time. Just being a few minutes late every day can  potentially impact on your child's education as well as causing your child unnecessary stress.

We are here to help and give guidance - if you would like to chat to Helen Leitch our attendance officer, please call at the school office.

The table below gives you an indication of the time lost in school by lateness.
