Attendance

Whole school attendance was 96.99% last week. Not bad!

Congratulations to 1W who had the best attendance last week with 98.33%

It is the Parent or Guardian's responsibilty to ensure that their child attends school every day.

Children should be in their line ready to start school at 9AM. School starts promptly at 9am. Children who arrive after this time are late and often miss the start of their lesson. This also disrupts the learning of other children.

Late children should be brought to the Office by an adult to provide a reason and collect a late slip which is to be handed to the class teacher as registration closes at 9.10am. Regulations mean children who arrive late after the registers have closed will receive an authorised absence mark. If your child has a medical appointment please let the Office know in advance and bring in proof.

Currently we are closely monitoring punctuality 

Please call before 9.30 am to report an absence and provide a reason

You must phone each day of your child's absence; when you do not phone, your child's absence will be recorded as unauthorised.

If your child is going to be collected from school by someone other than you please inform the school office by1pm at the very latest

The school gates will not open until 8.50am. Parents/carers must not enter site before this time. 

 

At our school we believe that excellent attendance (100% or as near as possible) can be achieved when staff, parents and children work together in partnership.

We work with a variety of outside agencies to ensure children receive their educational entitlement, offer families support and meet our attendance targets.

We believe that children who are regularly late and have poor attendance are being denied their equal opportunities and are not able to reach their potential.
