Please ensure that your child regularly and punctually attends school. All children arriving late to school, or leaving early, should see Mrs Brailsford, Attendance Officer, at the office.
To comply with Government legislation, schools are now required to publish authorised and non-authorised absences of all pupils on an annual basis. It is therefore vital that if your child is absent, you leave a phone message at the office. We will contact you that morning if your child is absent and no message has been received. The Educational Welfare Officer will follow up repeated or unexplained absences. We DO NOT authorise holidays taken in term time. If you must take your child out of school for a holiday a form must be completed in full at least two weeks before the holiday commences, and these are available from the office.
Attendance Tracking and Rewards
As a school, attendance is a priority to ensure all children are in school every day learning. We have a successful reward system in place which is shared weekly on the newsletter and also in mentions assembly. Each week the class with the highest attendance each half term are rewarded with a non- uniform day. Children who attend school every day receive 100% attendance and will have a visit to the cinema and the end of the academic year. The class with the highest attendance throughout the year will also visit the cinema as a special reward. The attendance tracker is in the hall for all children to see and to celebrate.
As a school we work closely with parents to support your child’s attendance. Please do speak to the office if you feel you need further support.
