As part of our commitment to improving the attainment of our pupils we monitor pupil attendance on a regular basis. During our regular monitoring of pupil attendance we identify any pupil whose attendance causes concern.


The information below shows how attendance can affect your child’s future progression:

  • Above 97% : Less than 6 days absence a year Excellent attendance! These young people will almost certainly get the best grades they can, leading to better prospects for the future. Pupils will also get into a habit of attending school which will help in the future.
  • 95%: 10 days absence a year. These pupils are likely to achieve good grades and form a habit of attending school regularly. 
  • 90%: 19 days absence a year. The Government classes Young People in this group as ‘Persistent Absentees’ and it will be almost impossible to keep up with work.

At St.Gregory's Catholic Primary School the class with the highest attendance percentage for the week receive the Attendance Cup for their class. We also hold a weekly prize draw for children with 100% attendance for the week. Both celebrations are very popular with all the children and are in recognition of the efforts made by the children and their families to attend school regularly.
