Attendance, behaviour and punctuality
Whole School Attendance September 15 - July16 - 95.4%
Current Whole school attendance up to April 2017 is currently 94.1%
Having good attendance, punctuality and behaviour will not only enable your child to achieve their full potential at our school, but will prepare them well for their adult life.
We place great importance on regular attendance. Research indicates that pupils, who attend regularly, will achieve better academically and enjoy better relationships with staff and other pupils.
The government expects every pupil to achieve a minimum of 95% attendance.
We have an Inclusion Team who supports the parents/carers of children whose attendance falls below 95%.
Mrs Debbie Cox will visit the homes of children who are absent from our school to discuss absence. If you are having difficulties regarding your child’s attendance, please contact Debbie on 01274 677549 and school mobile number.
Poor attendance could result in a referral to Bradford Council’s Education Social Work Service which may result in legal action.
We aim for 100% attendance. Each week pupils who have had 100% attendance receive a raffle ticket to be entered into our attendance raffle at the end of the year. Prizes include a bike and digital cameras. Pupils who have been on our school roll at the start of the academic year and achieve 100% attendance by the last day of the academic year will receive a treat such as a meal out to a local restaurant. There will be rewards for children who also have 96% attendance or above.
It is important your child/ren’s day gets off to a good start, so don’t forget teaching and learning begins at 8.55am and:
- Arriving late causes unnecessary disruption for your child/ren, the class and for staff
- Arriving late can result in your child being unsettled instead of being ready to learn
- Our School Inclusion Team will visit homes of children who are persistently late to school to discuss punctuality
- Persistent lateness may result in a referral to Bradford Council’s Education Social Work Service
If you have difficulties with getting your child to our school on time, please contact Mrs Debbie Cox
The third core life skill that prepares children for success is positive behaviour.
Your co-operation with supporting us with attendance, punctuality and behaviour expectations would be very much appreciated. If you would like to discuss any of these matters, please do not hesitate to contact the headteacher or deputy headteacher.
