Attendance & Absence

At St John Fisher we are proud that our school attendance is so good. We know how important it is for all pupils to be in school every day, in order to keep up with the curriculum and in order to mix socially with their peers. When a child is absent from school, we miss them and they will miss their teachers and friends. 

To report your child's absence please telephone 0208 540 2637 or email

Please read the following PDF document, which helps explain why every school day counts in a child's education.
