EVERY SCHOOL DAY COUNTS!

 

Going to school every day means:

  • Better life chances for your child
  • Building lasting friendships and support networks
  • Taking part in exciting learning opportunities
  • Being able to achieve their full potential
  • Developing a love of learning

 

We would like all children to aim for a personal attendance of 97% or more.  

 

You can help your child achieve this by:-

  • Watching the clock at breakfast time in order to be at school for 8.55 am to be here in time for your child to be ready to learn.  If your child is late regularly, we will invite you to meet to discuss how we can support you to get your child to school on time.  It is very embarrassing for a child to come into the classroom once lesson has started and very disruptive for the other children.  
  • Telephoning the school if your child is ill - 0115 9322424
  • Remembering NO holidays during term time - requests for leave of absence will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances
  • Not booking routine check ups during the school day

 

We celebrate good attendance by awarding a certificate to the class with the best attendance at our weekly assembly.  We also rewarding children with certificates at our end of year Leavers service for children who have achieved 99% and 100% attendance.  Those with 100% attendance also receive a gift voucher!  We will report on attendance each term by sending home a 'herringbone' report and using our traffic light system to let you know if your child's attendance is good - green, worrying - amber, serious concern - red.  

 

If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child's attendance and how we can support them in school please speak to Mrs Frith, our Pupil Welfare Officer.
