Good attendance and punctuality are vital if students are to achieve their maximum potential. Stocksbridge High School is committed to working with parents/carers and students to ensure that each student benefits from the academic, personal and social opportunities available to them during their years with us.

A high level of attendance at school is not only a legal requirement but is vital for all our students to enable a continuity of learning, thereby ensuring maximum progress for all. There is a clear link between good attendance and academic achievement, as well as enabling the development of social and emotional skills.
