We are delighted that our attendance 2015-2016 of 95.5% is in line with national expectations.
If a child is unwell we expect their parent or carer to contact our school. If there is no message from home a member of our office staff 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 are awarded 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 large attendance bear for the week.
Every term we celebrate children with 99%-100% attendance. The children are awarded a certificate.
In the summer term we have a tea party to celebrate children’s 99%-100% attendance for the academic year.
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.
