Significant research indicates that a child’s attendance is one of the biggest barriers to academic progress in school.


At St John Fisher, we believe that regular attendance is of paramount importance because:

  • It promotes the effective and continuous learning of all students.
  • It enables students to develop a more positive attitude to school and the world of work, learning the importance of being punctual and reliable.
  • It enables students to build relationships and further develop their social skills.
  • It enables students to further develop a sense of belonging to the St John Fisher Catholic community.
  • It is more likely that students will achieve their potential and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults.
