School attendance lays the vital foundations of a child’s life. To this end, St George’s seeks to ensure that all its pupils receive a full-time education, suitable to their age, aptitude and ability, which maximises opportunities for each child to realise their potential. To gain the greatest benefit from their time at St George’s it is vital children attend regularly and on time. We would always encourage pupils to strive for 100% attendance by attending every day the school is in open for instruction, providing they are fit and well enough to do so. In order to support this, we adopt a whole school approach to school attendance and will engage with families to identify, address and overcome barriers to attendance and learning.
We want to provide your children with the best education possible so they are ready for their next phase of learning but can only do this if they are in school every day.
