Attendance

Attendance at school is vital for children’s education and wellbeing. Parents and carers have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education.

It is important to set the foundations for good attendance from when a child starts at our school. Regardless of their age, we have high expectations for attendance.

Children below statutory school age should attend the hours/days they have registered for. This helps them to develop a routine, form friendships and progress in their learning, ready for full time education in reception.

The Attendance Challenge

Each week during our Thursday Celebration Assembly we announce the winners of our attendance Challenge.

Classes compete in their ‘phase’ (EYFS / KS1 / LKS2 / UKS2) to win the weekly prize. Details of the prizes and winning classes can be found in the table below:
