Attendance at St David's

School Target: 94%

Over a year we expect pupils to achieve 94% attendance or above.

Those who fall below this expected level may be seen by a member of the Senior Learning Management team to discuss why this low attendance could be and if there is anything we can help them with to show improvement.

We try to reward good attendance every half term with rewards for tutor groups and individuals. Our most recent rewards were a non-uniform day for the best groups in Key Stages 3 and 4, as well as a V.I.P breakfast for every pupil in lower school on 100% attendance. We are very proud to have so many of our pupils having not missed a single day of school so far this year.
