Stoke Park Junior School has high expectations for every pupil's attendance.
For a child to reach their full educational potential a high level of attendance is essential. We are committed to establishing a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment, where the responsibility of excellent attendance and punctuality is shared by parents, carers and teachers.
For children to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered it is vital your child is at school and on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. The routines you and your child develop around school attendance and punctuality are the same as the expectations of both secondary schools and future employers.
The importance of pupil attendance
- Regular attenders make better progress, both socially and academically
- Regular attenders find friendships, school routines and school work easier to cope with
- Regular attenders are more successful in transferring between primary school, secondary school and higher education, employment or training
