Our school target is 97%
Each week we present a certificate to the class with the best attendance. At the end of the Easter Term the class with the best attendance will be rewarded with a class party.
Each term there are awards of vouchers for achievements in attendance. In the last term of the school year we award raffle tickets each week to the children with 100% attendance for a full week who also have no lates, no leaving early and no medical appointments during school hours. (Documented hospital appointments are allowed). In the last week of the term we hold the raffle and we award a special prize to one child from KS1 and one child from KS2. Last year the prize was an Apple iPad.
The Attendance officer will contact you if there are any concerns regarding your child’s attendance and certainly if your child’s attendance falls to 92%
Attendance really does matter and there is a link between good school attendance and high level attainment within children. Whatever the reason, the fact is if your child is absent from school they are missing out on learning time.
There are a fixed number of days in a school year, leaving 170 days to spend on family time, shopping, appointments and other things. Our aim is for all children to achieve 100% attendance.
We are engaging in a number of new initiatives to encourage improvement in our whole school attendance.
