Promoting good attendance for all children is a priority at our school. We know that children will thrive in their learning at school if they have excellent attendance. If your child is absent from school, we ask that you call us before 9.30am to explain reasons for the absence.
On a daily basis, Mrs Beresford makes check-up calls for any children with unexplained absence.
The daily registers of attendance are closely monitored by our safeguarding team.
Daily monitoring of attendance is recorded daily as an overview, enabling a quick analysis of attendance each day.
It is collated by admin and overseen by the Headteacher. Any names of concern that are absent without good explanation, receive a follow-up call from the Headteacher, the same day. All holidays are unauthorised and may lead to penalty notices.
Attendance review meetings take place termly for those children who have issues regarding their attendance. The school is able to offer a range of support to promote good attendance.
Good attendance is celebrated each week, with the best attending class having Eddy Bear for the week in class. The class with the best attendance over the term is treated to delicious cookies baked by our school cook, Tina.
