Attendance & Punctuality

Our attendance target for 2021-22 is 96%. 

  • 1 day off per school year means attendance will only ever reach 99.5%
  • 10 days of per school year means attendance will only ever reach 94.7%
  • 20 days off per school year means attendance will only ever reach 90%  

Poor school attendance can result in academic underachievement, difficulty in making or keeping friendship groups and a loss of child’s confidence and self-esteem. Research has proven that children who have poor school attendance when attending primary school are more likely to truant when in secondary schools.

Attendance Incentives
Pupil job number 1 – come to school everyday on time.

At the beginning of each half term the class attendance league starts. Each week the class with the highest attendance wins the most points in the league and displays the shiny attendance trophy proudly in their classroom. At the end of each half term, the class with the most points earns a class reward!

If your class gets 100% attendance for a whole week you could earn extra rewards.
