At St Clare’s we place a high importance on our children attending, on time every day.  For your child to have access to all the wonderful activities and events that we plan in school, they need to be in school and on time to enjoy them.

  If children do not attend school regularly, they may not be able to keep up with school work.  In a busy school day it is difficult for teachers to find the extra time to help a child to catch up.  It's not only the academic work that suffers - missing out on the social side of school life can affect your child's ability to make and keep friends, a vital part of growing up.

Every week at St Clare’s we publish our attendance figures in our school newsletter and we announce them in our Celebration Assembly each week.  We have attendance themed weeks when we link our attendance figures to maths lessons and have a whole school focus on the importance of attendance.


The class with the best attendance (it must be over 97%) each week wins an extra playtime for the class, either outside or with wet play games!


Holidays in term time


Holidays in term time will not be authorised.  If you chose to take your child out of school during term time you can be fined by the local authority.
