We believe it is vitally important that the children attend school every day to allow them to benefit from the rich curriculum that is offered.
Good attendance and punctuality are important if teaching and learning time is to be maximised and the child is to receive a full curriculum entitlement.
The school aims to achieve good attendance and punctuality by operating a policy within which staff, pupils, parents and the Education Welfare Service can work in partnership.
The school monitors attendance and lateness, and addresses any problems identified.
Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning.
"Reading is a strength of the school.
Pupils read widely and fluently and have many opportunities to read."
"Pupils make rapid and sustained progress from their starting points, often reaching standards above those expected for their age."
"Pupils make positive progress in both writing and mathematics and across the wider curriculum. "
"Outstanding leadership has led to rapid improvements in all areas of the school since the last inspection."
"Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. They are very well prepared for their next
steps in both education and life. "
"Links with other schools in the trust enable leaders to check the accuracy of their judgements and share good practice. "
