Weekly Attendance

Welcome to our School Attendance Page

 

From here you will find our attendance policy, advice on attendance matters and weekly updates on class attendance.

Regular attendance at school promotes pupils’ wellbeing, maximises progress in learning and helps children to reach their potential. Attendance for all children is monitored on a weekly basis, with the school seeking to actively work with parents to ensure a regular pattern is maintained. Attendance is celebrated at the end of each week as part of our ‘Celebration Assembly’. Children in the classes with the highest attendance, who have attendance of over 95%, will be entered into a prize draw at the end of each half term.

All children who achieve 100% attendance each month, will receive a sticker from their class teacher.

Something to think about…

 Attendance statistics over a 1 year period:

98% absence = 4 days off school

95% absence = 10 days off school

90% absence = 4 weeks off school

85% absence = 5.5 weeks off school

80% absence = 7.5 weeks off school

 

 

Please remember that children need to be in school between 8.45am and 9.00am.

Medical appointments, where possible, should be made outside of school hours. You may be asked to show your appointment letter at the school office.

If your child has suffered from sickness or diarrhoea they must not return to school for 48 hours from the last bout, as they may still be contagious. If you are unsure as to whether your child is well enough to attend school, the following link gives clear guidance.
