At Tarbert Comprehensive we place great importance on good attendance and punctuality. Studies have proven that a student’s attendance has a direct impact on their learning. Students who are frequently absent from school or late to school do not reach their full potential.
Good attendance also helps to build self – esteem and confidence in students. They become more involved in the school community as a result. Please support by ensuring your child attends school regularly.
If you have any concerns around your child’s school attendance, please contact us. We are here to help. Let’s work together to make every day count!
