St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Attendance and Punctuality

The school is open from 8.40am and classes start at 8.50am prompt.  Please ensure your child is in the playground by 8:45am to ensure a calm and orderly start to the day. Our minimum attendance target for every child is 96%, and we value the support we receive from parents/carers in helping to achieve the best possible learning outcomes for their child/children. If your child is unable to attend school due to illness then please contact the office (01772 797397) giving the reason for absence.


Punctuality and regular attendance at school is a legal requirement.  Absence and/or persistent lateness from school without good reason is an offence and may result in a prosecution.  Please see the attendance page on this website for more information.
