Every moment counts
We want our pupils to benefit from the highest quality education to enable them to excel. We know that pupils who attend well have the best chances of success academically and socially. They are more likely to achieve well in examinations and assessments and more likely to form secure and lasting friendships.
This can only be achieved it pupils are in school regularly, and on time.
We have a meticulously planned curriculum which sets out exactly what pupils should be taught at every stage of the year. When pupils are absent, they risk developing large gaps in their learning.
Excellent attendance is everyone’s business and improving attendance is in everyone’s interests. We aim to secure good attendance by building strong relationships with pupils, parents and carers so that we can support them to reduce any barriers to school attendance.
Mrs Cruise was fortunate enough to get these special items blessed by His Holiness Pope Francis on her recent visit to Rome. She kindly gifted a set of blessed rosary beads to each child. What a special gift for our children and an amazing experience for Mrs Cruise
