At St Luke’s we firmly believe that regular school attendance is essential for the educational progress and overall wellbeing of our pupils.  We recognise that attendance cannot be seen in isolation and that the foundation to good attendance is a calm, orderly, safe and supportive environment in which all pupils want to attend and can learn and thrive.

Attendance is the essential foundation to positive outcomes for all pupils and is therefore seen as everyone’s responsibility in school.

Please see our school’s Attendance Policy here.
