Spotlight on Attendance

Dear Parents

At St John’s, we encourage children to be in school every day. Research shows that children who attend every day are 3 times more likely to achieve the highest standards in their work than those who are frequently absent. They also have better social and communication skills.

Please read the letter carefully, this can be found on the page under Parents – Letters.  It has also been sent to you by email so you can check through the Parent Mail app.

If you need any support with this important issue, please come and see me or Mrs O’Keefe. Our school nurse, Kelly Maskell, is also available regularly.
