Attendance & Awards

Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Primary School recognises that regular attendance is vital for every pupil. Irregular and poor attendance will have an adverse effect on educational attainment. Poor punctuality undermines learning and teaching. It is important that every pupil develops good habits which will enable them to realise their potential and make a positive contribution to school life and society. Parents have a legal responsibility for ensuring that their children attend school regularly. They must also ensure that their children are in school on time, in correct uniform and ready to learn. Support will be given to parents wherever necessary, to encourage full attendance and good punctuality. The school will take a register twice daily and record the information generated.
