Attendance is the biggest barrier to learning for any child and it is vitally important that all children attend school.


Children that attend school on a regular basis not only have the best chance in life, but have a better opportunity to achieve & succeed. Attendance is key to improving your child’s physical, social & emotional well being.


St Marie’s Catholic primary school boasted the highest average attendance rate in Kirkby during the last academic year of 2015 - 2016 at 96.8% frown 


The national average attendance rate is currently 96.2% so as a school, St Marie's is way ahead. We wish this to continue into this new academic year, so there will still be rewards and prizes for the children as listed below.
