At Little Stoke Primary School we believe that regular and punctual attendance at school, are key elements in promoting children’s learning and attainment.  Only by regular attendance can children access the quality education that is offered at our school.

We are therefore, committed to the following principles: –

  • To encourage all pupils to attend school and achieve their maximum potential.
  • To promote good attendance throughout the school, aiming for at least 96.4% for the academic year
  • To monitor attendance and use attendance data to work towards agreed targets.
  • To work in partnership with parents and carers in promoting excellent attendance and punctuality, as well as the LA and other agencies
