We at St. Joseph’s believe that children cannot learn if they are absent from school, therefore, we aim to ensure that all our children take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them and to raise standards by promoting regular attendance and punctuality of pupils.
Good attendance is rewarded to classes and individuals. Please be aware that medical appointments constitute an absence so wherever possible, please avoid making medical appointments for your child during the school day.
The class with the highest percentage attendance for the week is presented with our Attendance Ted in our weekly assembly. Ted stays with the class and accompanies the children on their weekly activities until the following week’s assembly.
At the end of Term 2, 100% attendance will be rewarded with a certificate and a Bronze badge.
At the end of Term 4, 100% attendance will be rewarded with a certificate and a Silver badge.
At the end of Term 6, 100% attendance will be rewarded with a certificate and a Gold badge.
Gold badge earners will all receive a additional surprise reward.
Your child will also be missing learning opportunities if they are late arriving at school.
Over a school year this is the learning that will be lost
Minutes late each day Days of learning lost
Please work with us to provide your child with the best chance of learning by ensuring they are in school, every day and on time.
