our school

Good attendance and punctuality are hugely important to how well children do at school and how they develop strong friendships. We expect the children to be on time for school and have very little time off.

We work very closely with the Local Authority to follow up problems if they occur, and we do a lot to reward and promote good attitudes in the children.

Each week, an ‘Early Bird’ punctuality certificate is awarded to the best class in KS1 and the best class in KS2. Classes who win Early Bird certificates get playtime rewards.

Best attendance is also celebrated in our weekly key stage assemblies.

The attendance level for 2014/5 was 95.1%. We work hard to ensure our attendance is at least 95% or more and this is shared with parents in ‘The Buzz’ (our weekly newsletter) along with information on punctuality and attendance which is published weekly.
