Our attendance at the end of our last school year was 95.1% which was a .2% improvement on the previous year. So a big well done to you all! We hope we can all work hard together this school year to raise our attendance even further to bring us in line with the national average which is 96% . I am sure with a huge effort from our whole school community we can do it.
For this school year our target to 96%. If together we can reach 96% we will hold our attendance party again at the end of the school year.
We have lots of new incentives to help raise our whole school attendance including an end of year McDonalds for those classes staying at or above 96% and a reward for any class having 100% for the whole week. The children will also be taking part in an in class attendance race each month so remember every day counts! In the Autumn Term we introduced our Punctual and Present Purse Reward Scheme. Every week the children have the chance to earn 2 pound coin tokens for either, their class having 96% attendance or above for the whole week or for all of the children attending that week being on time for school. At the end of the school year Mrs France will exchange the tokens for real money and the class can decide together how the money will be spent.
These new incentives have come from the children following an attendance questionnaire.which gave the children the opportunity to express what they felt would help motivate them to improve attendance .
