For any pupil to meet their full potential academically, a consistently high level of attendance is crucial.  At this school, we aim to ensure the highest possible levels of attendance for all, thereby enabling every pupil to take full advantage of the educational opportunities, both academic and social, which are available to them.

In line with our ethos, this school is committed to providing the best possible education for our pupils, ensuring equal opportunities for all.  Our intention is that each individual feels valued and supported. Our emphasis is on building excellent working relationships with pupils and ensuring a calm, orderly, safe and stimulating learning environment where all pupils want to be and where they are keen and ready to learn.

We have two attendance dragons at Stratford Primary who love coming to school and visiting the classes. The classes with the highest attendance each week get to have George or Desmond visit and involve them in learning. 

We have an attendance display in our school hall which shows attendance over the term and also some of the activities George and Desmond get up to with the children. 

At Stratford Primary School our attendance target is 97%
The attendance lead for Stratford Primary is Mrs G Humphriss

We recognise that for some children due to additional needs they may struggle to come to school on time. We work closely with our families to support those children in feeling safe in school and work with each individual child on a plan which helps them to access school in their own time.
