Attendance and Admissions
At St Barnabas and St Paul's Primary School, we know the impact regular attendance has on your child’s learning and well-being; and that having good attendance is directly linked to raising achievement and develops skills for life and work. We have many initiatives to celebrate and support attendance in school and ask that parents/careers support the school in this by ensuring that your child attends school every day and arrives ready to learn and on time at 8.35am.
We encourage all children to keep our three Attendance Promises:
I will try my best to come to school every day.
I will try my best to arrive on time every day.
I will try my best to be prepared for school every day.
We ask our children to be an Attendance H.E.R.O. (Here Every day Ready On time) and help us achieve our school Attendance Target of…
Primary national pupil attendance is around 96%. This means that a child needs to attend school for at least 182 out of 190 days to meet national expectations.
