Greatstone Primary School Nursery



At Greatstone Primary School, we recognise the positive link between regular attendance, punctuality and high academic achievement.  We want all of our children to achieve their full academic potential and we believe this is only possible if they attend school regularly and on time.

Generally, children whose attendance is 95% or above:

  • make better progress, both socially and academically
  • find it easier to follow school routines
  • have an easier transfer to secondary school. 

If your child is absent for any reason it is essential that you inform the school. 

Please remember to call in each day your child is away sick.

Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education. Pupils learn new things at school every day – missing school simply puts them behind and can hinder their life chances. 

Study Bugs App

At Greatstone primary School, we use the Studybugs App for parents to report their child’s absence. It’s an excellent way to get up to date NHS advice, including CV-19 as well as information regarding mental health and well-being.
