It is very important that your child attends school every day.
You can only allow your child to miss school if they are too ill to attend or you have got advance permission from school. This will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Please ask at the office for a form if this is required.
Since September 2013, holidays in term time will not be authorised. Click here for more information.
Our attendance at St. Peter's is celebrated. Each week, in Friday Assembly, the class with the best attendance is presented with a trophy that they keep for the week, as well as a picture of an ice cream to put on the display in the corridor. At the end of each year, the class with the most ice creams receives a visit from the ice cream van and they get to choose whichever ice cream they want.
If a class has 100% attendance in a week - all the children coming to school every day - the children receive a packet of sweets!
