Good attendance and punctuality are vital for success at St Mary & St Thomas and establish positive life habits necessary for future success. They also minimise the risks of pupils conducting anti-social behaviour or becoming victims/perpetrators of crime or abuse. Regular attendance also encourages your child to build friendships and develop social groups, working together as a whole team, sharing ideas and developing life skills. Children’s social skills are also enhanced by regular attendance.

Our school displays a positive and proactive ethos that places high value on attendance and punctuality and values its partnership with parents/carers to promote good attendance. This policy advocates close working with all local Schools and aims to provide a cohesive approach to tackling attendance within St Mary & St Thomas ensuring that every child matters.

Our attendance figure for the academic year 2020/2021 was 95.9%.
