At Travis St Lawrence we aim for 100% attendance.
We recognise the importance it has on both teaching and learning and like everything else we strive for the best. It is a well know proven fact that children who attend school regularly are more likely to be successful.
We do recognise that from time-to-time children do fall ill and this cannot be helped. However, we also recognise that high rates of absence reduces our children's rate of success - something every child is entitled to.
