We have had a great start to the year with 3 classes achieving perfect attendance last week – 100% attendance and no Late marks. Well done to the following classes: Robin (Year 2), Fox (Year 3), Hawk (Year 6). Kestrel (Year 6) also achieved 100%, with just 1 Late mark.
We want all our pupils to reach their full potential. Therefore, we expect all children to achieve attendance of 96% for the school year, as good attendance is proven to improve a child’s educational outcomes. 96% attendance is equivalent to no more than 7 days of absence in a school year. Each term, we reward pupils with good attendance with a range of awards, such as stickers, certificates and badges, and those with excellent attendance and punctuality (no more than one late mark per term) are also entered into the end of term prize draw to win toys, scooters, skateboards etc.
Punctuality is an important life skill. Children can go into class from 8.40am and the register is taken at 8.55am. If your child arrives after this time they will be given a Late mark in the register.
Well done to everyone for a great start to the year! Keep it up!
