Each Friday morning during our Sharing Celebrations the class with the best attendance is awarded a certificate. At the end of each term all the children with 100% attendance are awarded a special prize.
Statistically, children whose attendance is less than 85% will fail to meet their potential. Additionally, the Government expects your child to attend at least 95% of school sessions. In real terms, that means that should you take your child out of school for 10 days Leave of Absence in term time and your child has time off sick, they will already be below the official attendance rate. We are required to check absence on a half term basis and repeated absence is followed up by the Attendance Advisory Officer.
