Attendance Matters

At Brock, we continue to be proud of our success in helping students to achieve their grade 4 in Maths. An important part of this success is high attendance.

Attendance in maths is essential to give each student the best possible chance of success. Please encourage your son/daughter to attend all lessons without fail from the start of the academic year. We recommend that students bring the calculator they used at school to all lessons.

Students who feel that they may need some support may be able to attend extra additional sessions through Skills Development.
