St Mary's Island CofE Primary School


As a school we have succeeded in meeting our attendance targets.

Thank you for your consideration and co-operation.

The benefits of good attendance support pupils' progress and in the long term raise attainment.

Arrival at school
Some children are arriving far too early for school. The school gates open at 8:35 a.m, so 8:30 a.m. is the recommended arrival time. Note children should under no circumstances be left between 8:00 – 8:15 a.m. without an adult; there are usually places in Breakfast Club, which opens at 7:30a.m. at a cost of £3.00 per day. Children left too early will be placed in Breakfast Club and a charge will be made.

Breakfast Club is open from 7:30 a.m, £3.00 per session, which must be paid for in advance via parentmail. A wide selection of breakfast is available. Children should arrive at Breakfast Club no later than 8:15 a.m. to enable them to have time to eat breakfast before going to class at 8:35 a.m. Children should enter via the side door of the school hall.
As you are aware the parking problems continue around the school at drop off and pick up times. The car parking is a concession made to us by the Chatham Maritime Trust. We are very lucky to have this facility and we must all work together to ensure a smooth operation at busy times.
