At St Barnabas we are committed to raising the attainment of the pupils at our school. To ensure all pupils achieve their potential it is vital that they attend school daily. This attendance page will give you all the information you might need about attendance at St Barnabas. If you wish to talk to someone about attendance please come into the school office to make an appointment with our Attendance Officer Mrs Stevenson.
If your child is 30 minutes late every day they miss 2 and a half hours a week. That works out at 4 days a term and 12 days a year!
If your child is between 5 and 16 years old and is a registered pupil at school, it is your legal responsibility to make sure they attend regularly.
If your child misses 1 day of school a week they miss 7 and a half weeks a year. This is more than half a term’s learning!
To encourage the children, we offer fun incentives for those who achieve outstanding attendance. This includes:
