As a school, we aim to improve the punctuality of our pupils at school. We will continue working with the Education Welfare Officer and monitoring both the attendance and the punctuality of the pupils. Every minute in the classroom at St Mary’s is learning time and it is essential that children have good attendance to be able to achieve their full potential.

Our school attendance target for this year is 97%. We will be continuing to celebrate our weekly attendance with the pupils and award children for best, most improved and outstanding attendance throughout the year.

Registers will be taken as soon as the school day begins. Pupils arriving in school after 9.00 a.m. will be marked late.

From September 2023, we have extended our school day to 32.5 hours per week.
