Every minute counts when it comes to attendance in school and so we work hard to promote this to our children and families.  Our target for attendance this academic year (2018-2019) is 96.5%. Improving on 94.9% achieved in the last academic year (2017-2018).


We take a pro-active approach to encourage children to attend regularly, by:

  • Weekly attendance totals being shared in Friday assemblies, to see which year group has had the best attendance.
  • A 'best attendance' for the week display outside the school hall, to praise the winning year group.
  • Individual half-termly and termly 100% attendance certificates presented at Celebration Assemblies.
  • Most improved attendance certificates presented at Celebration Assemblies.
  • Attendance data shared in newsletters.
  • Meeting with parents who are struggling to get their children in to school.
  • Working closely with the Education Welfare Service to support families who might struggle to get their children to school on time, or on a regular basis.

For further and more detailed information, a copy of the school's Attendance policy can be found under the Policies tab of the website.
