Ss Peter and Paul's are committed to raising the attendance of its pupils and we would like to encourage you to support your child to improve their attendance. Our average attendance is currently at 96.7% which is above the national average of 94%. 

Obviously if your child is poorly then they do need to stay off school to ensure they recover. We are supportive of families with authorised reasons for taking time away from school as per the authorised exceptions criteria.

All parents who have children of compulsory school age are legally responsible for ensuring that their children receive a suitable education. Children who are in Reception and have not yet reached their 5th birthday will still benefit from the routine and structure of attending school at an early age.


Please note punctuality also has an impact on attendance rates. If a child arrives late at school, after registration closes, this equates to an absence.


Please see the attendance ladder illustrated below which indicates the impact of absences from school.
