John Taylor High School needs to meet the target of 96.2% which is the national average. We can only do this if parents support us fully and if we all understand the importance of NOT taking term time holidays or absences from school.

Thank you to those parents who are helping us raise our attendance levels, which helps our children to get the most out of their educational experience.
