Thank you for your support in ensuring that all of our students have an excellent attendance. Every year group has a large number of students who have 100% and many more above the expected 97%.
Excellent attendance is essential in ensuring the students achieve their potential. This half term we have had a focus on attendance and have given clear messages in our assemblies about the importance of being in school and the impact poor attendance can have on attainment. If every student can increase their attendance by just 1% it can raise achievement by 5-6%.
Your support is highly valued in reinforcing the need for excellent attendance and as we approach the end of the first half term we are going to award 2 pride points for every student who achieves 100% attendance in the final week.
After the half term break we will be launching attendance competitions with a range of prizes on offer for students who can maintain or improve their attendance. If you require any support regarding your child's attendance please contact Mr Howell or Mr Hart in school. firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
