St. John’s CE Primary School is committed to providing a full and efficient education to all pupils and embraces the concept of equal opportunities for all.
We will endeavour to provide an environment where all pupils feel valued and welcome.
For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential. We will consistently work towards a minimum of 96% attendance for all children, which is the national average. Every opportunity will be used to convey to pupils and their parents or carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance.
The school will at all times endeavour to support parents/carers in overcoming any barriers to achieving regular school attendance.
If a child is late, after 8:55am at Park Lane and 9:10am at Daisy Bank, the parent and the child must enter through the main entrance and report to the office for a late mark and the chld must be signed in by a parents/carer. If a child arrives after 9:30am, the morning’s absence will be recorded as ‘unauthorised’.
Lateness is closely monitored by the school and the Education Welfare Officer.
Please ensure that your child(ren) arrive at school ON TIME for a prompt start to the day as it is possible that they may miss the beginning of a lesson.
If your child is absent from school, please telephone the office on the first morning so that their absence is registered.
We ask that parents/carers organise family holidays for outside of term time.
