Children in Need - Friday 17th November 2017 - Children and staff may wear something 'spotty'. Children in Need wristbands are on sale throughout the week for a £1 donation. If your child wears the wristband on Friday this will count as their voluntary donation allowing them to wear something spotty, if not then they are welcome to bring a voluntary donation towards the cause.

Attendance

Attendance is take very seriously here at St Mark's. Below you will find important information with regards absense from school.

 

If your child is unwell and therefore unable to attend school, please can you telephone the school office, first thing in the morning, to report their absence in order for their absence to be authorised. You can leave a message on the school answer machine before school hours if this is more convenient 

 

From the start of this academic year the Government have reduced the persistent absence threshold from 15% i.e.
absent for 28 days (equivalent of 56 sessions) in a school year to 10% i.e. 19 days or 38 sessions. If your child is
absent for more than 38 sessions this academic year, then they will be defined as a persistently absent pupil.
