John Taylor High School needs to meet the target of 97%. We can only do this if parents support us fully. A way this can be done is for students not to be absent through unauthorised leave – holidays.

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.
