The whole school attendance for December was 93.91% which was another slight drop from November and keeps us below our floor target of 96%. There were fewer children absent with the sickness and respiratory virus, however attendance was mainly affected by families not providing a reason for absence. Most parents/carers are very good at informing us of the reason for their child’s absence, which can be done via calling (01207 504431), texting (07537436638) or emailing the school (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Failure to inform us does result in an unauthorised absence which may then instigate further action and monitoring. If your child has been off several ad-hoc times, with the same reason, this is recorded.
On Monday 16th December the autumn term attendance letters were sent home, they were colour coded using a traffic light system. If you received a red letter you may have been asked to contact the school for a support meeting. Please do so.
The December attendance by year group is as follows:
Year 3 – 97.78% – What an amazing result year 3!
Year 4 – 91.82% – Bottom year group.
Year 5 – 92.18%
Year 6 – 93.73%
As year 3 have achieved the best attendance for December each child in year 3 will be given a cake/giant cookie this Friday (10th January) as their reward. Class 1 (Mrs McMahon) have achieved the reward for the best class attendance at an amazing 98.81%, well done!
The Class 1 reward for this is a FREE non-uniform day which will also be on Friday 10th January. This sees Class 8 knocked from the top spot, having achieved this for three consecutive months.
