"The school’s mantra of ‘Achieve through Belief’ is at the heart of all the work of St Chad’s CofE Primary School" Ofsted 2017


Promoting positive behaviour and excellent attendance is the responsibility of the whole school community.

The governors, head teacher and staff of St Chad’s are keen to ensure that all our children attend school regularly and punctually so that they receive the best education possible.


It is an established fact that children who develop poor patterns of attendance and punctuality at primary school tend to continue with this pattern throughout their school life and beyond. For this reason we as a school want to promote the view that regular attendance is vital to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for all of our children.


Children should be at school, on time every day the school is open unless the absence is unavoidable. Permitting absence from school without good reason is an offence by the parent.
