Regular attendance is extremely important. Our School Target for Attendance is 96%

It must be emphasised that whenever a child is absent from school, Please inform us by a telephone call whenever your child is absent, stating the reason for the absence.This is extremely important. Schools are required by law to make returns to the Government on all absences. Similarly, request for taking children out of school during the day, e.g. for medical or dental reasons, must be made either by letter or by an appointment card. Under no circumstances will children be allowed to leave school premises without an adult.
