Slide background


Good attendance and punctuality are essential to ensuring that your child gets the most out of their time at school. They are also important life skills that your child will need as they become young adults and enter the world of work.

As a school we are working hard to achieve our overall attendance target this year of 96% working with our parents to ensure that each child attends school regularly and on time.
