We have received confirmation from the authority that we surpassed our attendance target for February, achieving a level of 96.3%. We are thrilled that attendance has improved significantly this school year and we thank you for working with us to make this possible.
As the summer term quickly approaches we would like to ensure that we maintain this standard.
