Attendance & Punctuality



Rewards are given for Excellent Attendance :


A Bear is presented within each Year Group to the class that has the highest attendance for that week.


A Bear is also presented for the Class with the Most Improved attendance for that week.

Certificates are given each Half Term to the children who have achieved 100% attendance in a special assembly.


Certificates & wrist bands are given each Term to the children who have achieved 100% attendance in a special assembly.


Certificates, wristbands & a present are given at the end of each year to the children who have achieved 100% attendance across a whole school year in a very special assembly.


In addition, a certificate is issued to classes that achieve 100% attendance in any one week & the children all receive a special bookmark.


However, children that are LATE for school do not qualify for these awards, even in they have been in each day.


Certificates are issued to classes that have NO children arriving late for school in any one week.




We would like to draw your attention to the school’s policy drawn up in line with the requirements placed on us by the Local Authority. It gives the following guidelines to ensure each child reaches their full potential.


Holidays MUST NOT be taken during term time and will be unauthorised with

the possibility of a fixed penalty notice being issued to each parent.




Pupils whose attendance falls below the expected levels will be asked to provide medical evidence.



Punctuality is closely monitored. Children are expected to be in the classroom by 9am and collected at 3pm. Doors open at 8.50 am to enable parents/carers to drop off siblings so that children can all be in on time.  All lates will be monitored and children collected regularly after 3pm may be fined.



If your child is absent you must ring and leave a message at the school office by 8.45am, stating your child’s name, class and reason for absence.




If you need any further help or advice regarding Punctuality and Attendance please do not hesitate to contact the school office.


Thank you for your cooperation.
