Attendance Report

Each term, school is required to submit an average attendance report to the authority.

Our average termly attendances over the past year have been as follows:

Attendance Authorised Absence Unauthorised Absence
Summer 2016 97.29 % 2.22 % 0.49 %
Autumn 2016 97.25 % 2.44 % 0.31 %
Spring 2017 97.05 % 2.57 % 0.38 %

School monitors attendance carefully.  If a child’s attendance falls below 90%, school will make contact with the child’s parents. If improvements are not made, then both the Family Support Worker (Helen Fantham) and Educational Welfare will contact parents to investigate and support.

Punctuality is also monitored closely. Again, school will be in contact with parents if children are regularly late. The school gates will open for both the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds at 8:40am. The doors to EYFS/KS1 open at 8:50am and close promptly at 9:00am. In KS2, doors open at 8:40am and close at 8:50am. All late arrivals must report to the reception office for their key stage.
