Attendance & Punctuality
At St. Richard`s we know the impact regular attendance has on your child’s learning and well-being; and that having good attendance is directly linked to raising achievement and develops skills for life and work. We have many initiatives to celebrate and support attendance in school and ask that parents/careers support the school in this by ensuring that your child attends school every day and arrives ready to learn and on time at 8.50 am.
Did you know?
If your child misses only one day a week for their whole time in school they would miss the equivalent of two years’ schooling. That would be like not starting school until you were 7.
Being late for school can mean missing vital work and seriously disrupts lessons for everyone. Remember the law treats lateness and non-attendance in exactly the same way!Help your child to make the most of their education – get to school on time!
