This year’s targets are:
Attending regularly and being punctual has a direct impact on your child’s progress and attainment, so please help us to achieve this year's targets. Therefore we do not authorise family holidays in term time. If you are planning your next holiday please click on this link to show the Kent school holiday dates up to and including the academic year 2021-2022. https://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/term-dates#
At St Katherine’s School and Nursery we promote attendance and punctuality by every Friday giving out:
Attendance Cup - to all classes whose weekly attendance is 97% or above.
Improved Attendance Award - to all classes who have improved their weekly attendance to 97% or above or improved further when already 97%.
Punctuality Elephant - to all classes who have 100% punctuality.
In line with Government directives the school will not authorise holidays during school term, unless they believe it to be exceptional circumstances.
It is very important your child is punctual as otherwise they miss early morning work that revisits and consolidates their learning. It also is unsettling for them and others to come in late.
If you are concerned about your child’s attendance or punctuality please make an appointment to see our Family Liaison Officer, Mrs E Parris.
