St John's

Catholic Primary School

At St John's we grow and learn in the footsteps of Jesus.


Every term we carefully look at every child’s attendance. This week   letters have been sent out to those parents/carers whose child’s          attendance has fallen below 92%.


Be assured that these letters are standard ones, and in most cases   are simply an ‘early warning.’ We are required to send them, even when we already know the reasons why a child has been absent. Therefore please don’t be offended if you receive one.


On the other hand, if there are concerns about attendance, which aren’t explained by simple illness or other authorised absence, then we will set up an Attendance meeting, so that we can work together to support your child.


If you have any concerns about your child’s attendance, please speak to either your child’s class teacher, or Mrs O’Mahony, our Inclusion Lead.
