Attendance


The Government expectation is for children to achieve at least 96% attendance during the year.

We are continually striving to improve attendance. Our attendance officer monitors attendance and we reward children throughout the year in the following ways:-

  • Children achieving 100% attendance in a week, receive a special wristband.

  • The class of the week receives a trophy.

  • Children achieving 100% attendance at the end of each term receive an award. This year we arranged for an ice cream van to come into school. Please see the photos below of the children enjoying their ice creams!

  • Children achieving at least 98% attendance for the whole year receive a £10 gift voucher.

  • Children achieving 100% attendance for the whole year receive a visit to the cinema in addition to the £10 gift voucher.

If your child is absent from school due to illness, please call the school by 9.30am and leave a message on our absence line. If we do not hear from you, we will call you to make sure your child is safe. In cases of sickness and diarrhoea children should not return to school for at least 48 hours.

Please avoid making appointments for your child to see a doctor, dentist etc. during school time. If unavoidable, please bring your child in to school to be registered first and then collect them in time for their appointment. Please allow enough time for office staff to collect your child from their classroom.

All family holidays must be taken during school holidays. The Headteacher is unable to authorise any withdrawal from learning except in very exceptional circumstances.

Please note a fine may be incurred for unauthorised absences of five days or more or parents may be taken directly to court. Please ask in the office for further details.
