Our children come from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds; making it a diverse and vibrant learning community. Our children are enthusiastic learners who are engaged in their learning and behave consistently well. We believe it is extremely important for the children to attend school regularly and to be punctual. If a child has good attendance it enables them to maximise their potential in later life.

Attendance Expectations

At St Michaels Church Primary we recognise that attending school regularly and on time has a positive impact on learning, progress and therefore the best life chances for our students.


Excellent attendance and punctuality is the key for our student’s success. Therefore, we must ensure that attendance and punctuality are the highest they possibly can be in order to prepare our pupils for their future adult life. In line with the Government and Local Authority Guidelines, we expect all our pupils to maintain an attendance level of 96% and above.

It is the responsibility of everyone in our school community – parents, staff, students and governors to ensure they achieve this. Therefore, we monitor and review the attendance of all our students constantly. We encourage excellent attendance and punctuality for all students, by offering an environment in which our students feel valued and part of the school community.

Gold If your child attends the school over 100% of the time, they will receive positive recognition and reward badge. The names of these children will be announced for at our end of year celebration in Collective worship.
