Our attendance stats
THE SCHOOL WILL ALWAYS STRIVE TO CONTINUE IT’S HIGH EXPECTATION FOR GOOD PUNCTUALITY AND EXCELLENT ATTENDANCE …
Our current whole school figure is 95.3% which is a step in the right direction towards the national average of 97% and a huge leap from the 92.3% we were at the time of our HMI visit. Keep up the good work everyone!
As you know, we are keeping a very close eye on attendance as it is crucial for progress, achievement and secure friendships. Every week we calculate which class has the most children attending every day and the classes are tracking their own rating.
Huge congratulations must go to Miss Chaney and 2B who have clocked up 100% for the last 2 weeks and for the third time this term. Who can catch them for the half term treat? Mrs Gibson’s 3B class are close behind and I urge the 5/6s to make a bigger effort as they are lagging behind (October 2015).
ABSENT FROM SCHOOL?
Parents and carers should telephone the School Office on the first day of absence and send a note when the child returns to school. Parents wishing to take their child out of school during the day, for unavoidable medical appointments, must inform us beforehand.
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT WE ARE INFORMED WHEN CHILDREN ARE GOING TO BE ABSENT FROM SCHOOL …
Parents wishing to take their child out of school for other reasons during term-time must complete a request form (available from the School Office) and return it to the Headteacher for consideration. The Headteacher will not authorise term-time holidays because of the disruption they cause to children’s education. The Local Authority has advised all schools that such holidays are unacceptable.
