Attendance

Attendance

Research shows conclusively that children who attend school regularly and on time achieve best at school. At St Cuthbert’s we actively encourage children to be in school whenever possible and we are proud of our attendance record which is above the national average.

For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend school regularly and arrive at school on time unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. Any absence affects the pattern of a child's social and academic education and regular absence will seriously affect their learning.

 

Late arrival at school disrupts teaching routines, can upset the learning of others in the class and can disturb the smooth education of your child.

It is important that if your child is to do well at school then they attend regularly, as performance and achievement at school is directly affected by absence or lateness.

We ask parents to inform school of the reason for a child’s absence as soon as possible, and no later than 9:30 am on the first day of absence.

Weekly Attendance Race

In order to encourage good attendance we hold a weekly attendance race.  The winners are celebrated in our Friday worship.
