Unfortunately our attendance for 2017-2018 was 94.5% which was below national expectations.
If a child is unwell we expect their parent or carer to contact our school. If there is no message from home our Admin Officer will call to ensure that their child is safe.
Each week we celebrate attendance in our birthday assembly. The percentage of attendance is read out for each class and the classes who achieve 95% or above win a class star. This class star goes towards a class treat which the children choose (see the Behaviour policy). The class with the highest attendance keeps our new, large attendance bear for the week.
As well as attending school it is important to arrive on time so that children do not miss out on learning If a child misses the first session at school they will be marked as absent for the morning.
When a child’s attendance is below 95% parent/carers are given a warning letter and the subsequent targets to bring their child to school. This child is then closely monitored by the Admin Officer alongside the Headteacher.
