Your child’s attendance and punctuality are very important to us. St Kentigern’s RC Primary School believes that regular school attendance is the key to enabling children to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident, and competent adults who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community. We will be monitoring attendance on a daily and weekly basis to ensure that all of our children are in school and reaching their targets. We very much want to work together with all of our families to help support children's attendance at school. If you would like to discuss your child's attendance further or if we can help to support you, please do get in touch.
The DfE have issued new guidance on attendance for September 2022.
If your child arrives late to school, their learning begins to suffer. Below is a graph that shows how being late to school every day over a school year adds up to lost learning time.
