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 their absence.
On a daily basis, Mrs. Beresford makes check-up calls for any children with unexplained absence, and daily registers of attendance are summarised and closely monitored by our safeguarding team. Any children that are absent without good explanation may also receive a call from the Headteacher or Nurture Manager, the same day.
All term-time holidays are unauthorised and may lead to penalty notices.
Attendance reviews take place every six weeks and parents and carers are invited to attend Attendance Reviews Meetings if attendance is a concern. This is to explore ways in which school may be able to help improve your child's attendance.
The school offers a range of support to promote good attendance:
the class with the best attendance during the week is presented with Eddy Bear and the class with the best attendance over the half-term is treated to delicious cookies baked by our school cook, Tina.
