Guidance on Your Child's Attendance

At St Andrew's School we recognise that good attendance has a significant impact on your child's progress and we value parents' support with this.  We encourage every child to strive for good attendance and recognise this in many ways:

  • Weekly attendance award for the class with the best attendance
  • Certificates each term for every child who has achieved our school attendance target

Our target for 2019 - 2020 is 96%

Following recent Government legislation, Headteachers can only authorise term time holidays in exceptional circumstances. All applications must be submitted at least four weeks in advance and a form is available on the link below.
