Behaviour - Attendance
Attendance is key to making good progress.
Our aim is for every child to have attendance of at least 95% throughout the school year.
We celebrate good attendance in a number of different ways.
The class with the highest percentage of attendance is celebrated in our Friday assembly and receive extra play.
Children with attendance of 97% or higher are celebrated in our newsletter at the end of each term and highlighted on our 'thanks for being here' board in our hall.
They also receive a ticket for our end of year prize draw to win a kindle fire.
Occasionally, things go wrong and children's attendance can dip.
Our learning mentor, Mrs Hynes, monitors attendance on a weekly basis and meets regularly with the Education Welfare Offic (EWO).
We will support any family who are struggling with attendance.
This support can take many forms, just one example is encouraging the children to attend breakfast club, which helps ensure that they are on time.
Where improvements in attendance are not seen, despite support and intervention from school, then the EWO can become involved and can request meetings with parents/carers.
If these meetings still do not generate improvements, fines can be issued.
If you are struggling with getting your child into a school, please do not bury your head in the sand or ignore the issue, come and speak to a member of staff.
