Our whole school attendance target for 2018-2019 is:



At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, we firmly believe that regular attendance is vitally important to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children. Regular attendance means your child can make the most of their education, thus improving their chances in adult life. Being in school will also help your child's social skills, such as making and keeping friendships.

A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work.

To ensure your child gets the best possible start to their education, we ask that you support regular school attendance and punctuality.

Our school day starts with children entering school at 8:45 a.m. with learning starting at 8:50 a.m. prompt. Please ensure your child is on school premises and ready to line up at 8:45 a.m.

Any children arriving late will have to wait in reception and a record of why they are late made. They will also be missing the vital start to the school day and the building blocks for the days learning, as well as disturbing other children who have already started their lessons.
