    Our Attendance Monitors report to the school weekly to announce the class with the best attendance all week! 


    Good attendance is so important. Children who attend school regularly and on time do much better at school than those who don’t. We offer lots of rewards for children who have good attendance.

    Government legislation states that schools must keep a record of all UNAUTHORISED absences. Therefore, if for any reason your child is unable to attend school, please let the school office know the reason for his/her absence.  This can be done by text, letter or telephone call.

    It is essential that we abide by this regulation. I look forward to your support on this very important matter.

    The only entrance into school after 9.00 a.m. is the main entrance - all other doors are security locked.


    Attendance Percentage

    98%-100% — Excellent

    Holidays during term time

    Torfaen County Borough Council’s approach is to no longer approve pupils taking holidays during term time except for exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Headteacher.
