As you will be aware, children’s good attendance at school is crucial to ensure they reach their full potential. Our Christian ethos supports our work in this area, by encouraging our children to be the very best they can. We want our school to be a place where children want to be.
As a school, we are continually looking for ways to promote and reward good attendance so, to this end, wanted to share with you how we do this.
Each term, children with 100% attendance will be rewarded with a gold certificate, those with 99% attendance will be given a silver certificate and those with 98% attendance will be rewarded with a bronze certificate.
At the end of the academic year, those children who have had 100% attendance all year will receive a “100% Attendance” badge to wear.
Each week, the attendance of each class is calculated and recorded on the Attendance Board in the hall. Each term, the class with the highest attendance overall wins a class prize!
We are confident that these systems will continue to encourage children to be in school every day and will foster a positive attitude to attendance.
Please remember that late arrival, after the registers close at 9am, is logged as an unauthorised late (unless there are exceptional circumstances) and, therefore, a child would not be able to achieve 100% attendance.
