Believing and Achieving Together

School Attendance


All parents and carers who have children of compulsory school age are responsible in law for ensuring that their children receive a suitable education.  Early intervention by schools to improve and maintain good attendance and reduce persistent absence levels is crucial for the well-being of children and young people.


Each week we monitor class attendance and the results are given to the classes on a Monday morning. 

Any class who has 100% attendance are rewarded with 20 minutes of Golden Time which is taken during the week at the teachers' discretion. 

Classes with 97% attendance or above, have an extra 5 minutes of playtime, again taken at the teachers' discretion.



Aside from the class reward, individuals are also rewarded for Excellent attendance in school. 

Each half term, children who have achieved a fantastic 100% attendance for that half term are rewarded with a certificate of attendance and all names are placed into a prize drawer.  One winning name is drawn and the lucky person then receives £25.00 to spend in Argos on any item of their choice.
