St Joseph’s is committed to enabling every child to achieve their full potential.
There is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving a good education. Children who frequently miss school may fall behind in their learning and development. We are proud of our children’s good attendance but also remain determined to improve this further with your support.
Every school day is important, and it is essential that children attend school every day.
