Each term the children will be awarded 3 levels of attendance awards – Gold 100%, Silver 98-99.9%, Bronze 96-98%.
We will be “Going for Gold”, “Striving for Silver” and “Battling for Bronze”!
Term Time Holiday Requests
Following changes enforced on us by the Government, Headteachers may not grant ANY leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This does mean that where ordinarily a family may have previously taken term time holiday, this will no longer be possible and you should not take your children out of school. Exceptional circumstances will not be holiday, birthday celebrations etc.
First Day Calling
If your child is absent from school, please telephone the school office by 9.00 am. We have in place a system of first-day calling. This means that parents will be telephoned on the first day a pupil is absent without explanation, to establish a reason for the absence. This helps to identify at an early stage pupils who may be absent without their parents’ knowledge or do not have a good reason for absence.
It is essential that children are punctual and therefore ready to start the day in an orderly, calm manner. Lateness impacts on learning not only for the individual, but the class as a whole. Please ensure that your child arrives at school in time for registration at 8.45 am.
