The national expectation for attendance is 96%.
Each week we analyses the amount of lost learning hours for our children. Some weeks the number of lost learning hours is shockingly high! That means that some of our children are missing out on learning which is seriously affecting their progress and attainment. As we know, some children are missing big chunks of learning and may never catch up!
The other serious issue for our school is punctuality. A small number of children are late every day or a few times a week. Again, this means that the children are missing out. For example, in some classes children are taught to read from 8.45am and if your child is late, they are missing their reading session. If they are late everyday, they are missing their reading session everyday.
We are rewarding good attendance and good punctuality in various ways including announcing the class with the best attendance each week in our Celebration Assembly and the chance to earn a Class Breakfast with the teachers!
