Attendance at Ruskin

It is vital that children attend school everyday. Our current attendance figure is 95.8% - which means that 4.2% of learning time has been lost. Although this is above the National Average, we still believe that it is too much.

Please help us by ensuring that your child is in school everyday, that holidays are taken in school holidays and that they arrive on time for the start of the school day - gates open at 8.30am and school starts at 8.45am.
