Our Approach to Improving Attendance

In order to help promote good attendance and keep the momentum going we have a programme of positive approaches happening throughout the year that feed into our ‘Every Minute Counts’ ethos:

EVERY MINUTE COUNTS

EVERY one of our students matters to us

Every MINUTE they spend with us they, and others, can learn and grow

 And that learning and growing COUNTS towards them being better equipped for whatever direction they choose

 

Approaches

  • Greater emphasis in assemblies to help children understand the importance of good attendance
  • Every Minute Counts poster competition
  • Monthly parent and carer newsletters
  • Parent & Pupil workshops to find out issues/barriers to good attendance
  • Attendance Health Checkers for parents
  • ‘The Attendance Charts’ end of year celebration
  • Weekly and termly attendance and punctuality certificates
  • Introduction of ‘Attendance Surgeries’

 

Class attendance and overall attendance achievements will be posted on the outside noticeboard for parents to see every week.
