“Attendance and punctuality are an important part of good behaviour. Students who miss valuable time in classrooms fall further behind, and become more disengaged from the work of the class, which in turn encourages misbehaviour. In successful schools, the expectation is 100% attendance and 100% punctuality. This admittedly near-impossible goal is embedded as an aspirational norm. Crucially, it is monitored and tracked in real time  Administrative staff are allocated for this duty and just as crucially, deviation from this 100% results in a school reaction, an investigation, a sanction, support, whatever is needed.”

We are very proud of our attendance rates!

Data from the inspection data dashboard issued by DFE and OFSTED shows that attendance rates have been above national average for the last three years i.e. absence and persistent absence is below national average.

“Learning’s good, learning’s cool, so come on kids let’s go to school!”
School attendance matters” at St.Peter’s School.

We ask that children attend school every day unless they are too unwell to do so.

Attendance is very carefully monitored by the school.
Parents are asked to speak to the head teacher if they have concerns or issues arising.
