Please be assured that we have a special attendance code for absences relating to COVID; if your child has been instructed to self-isolate, your child’s attendance will not be penalised and these absences are not included in the figures. Do remember, if you are isolating, your child’s class teacher will upload work for your child to complete on Microsoft Teams.

        

Please remember to follow our policy when requesting leave of absence during term time. You need to put any requests to the Headteacher, in writing, with 10 days notice. You can read our School Attendance Policy on the website under Key Information > Polices,  or you can request a hard copy from the School Office at any time.

 

Thank you for working with us to ensure that every child’s attendance is as high as possible. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's attendance please don't hesitate to contact the school office. 

Attendance for Academic Year 2019/20 - End of Half Term 3

 

Our attendance target for this academic year is 97%.  

At the end of Spring Half Term 1 (14.02.20) our attendance was 97.44%. I am pleased we are above target again. At the exact same time last year our attendance was also 97.44%, so we are maintaining this high level of attendance.

 

The attendance for the individual year groups  is as follows:

 

Year Group Attendance

Reception

97.47%
Year 1 97.71%
Year 2 97.15%
Year 3 97.68%
Year 4 97.30%
Year 5 97.44%
Year 6 97.39%

 

Well done to every year group, they are all above target which is excellent! We also have 113 children who currently have 100% attendance - that means they have been in school every day, both morning and afternoon so far this year. This is fantastic at this stage of the year.

 

We have made improvements in our overall punctuality. Last year, at this stage our lateness level was 1.18% whereas this year it is 0.95%. Hopefully we can keep this up for the rest of the academic year.

 

Please remember to follow our policy when requesting leave of absence during term time. You need to put any requests to the Headteacher, in writing, with 10 days notice.

Attendance for Academic Year 2019/20 - End of Half Term 2

Our attendance target for this academic year is 97%.  

At the end of Autumn Term 2 (20.12.19) our attendance was 97.69%. I am pleased we are above target again. At the exact same time last year our attendance was also 97.69%, so we are maintaining this high level of attendance.

 

The attendance for the individual year groups  is as follows:

 

Year Group Attendance

Reception

97.78%
Year 1 98.16%
Year 2 97.73%
Year 3 97.73%
Year 4 97.65%
Year 5 97.65%
Year 6 97.35%

 

Every single year group is above target, which is fantastic. Year 1 have particularly high attendance as they are over 98% - well done to them. Year 6 were just below the target at the end of half term 1 so they have done very well in catching up. We also have 163 children who currently have 100% attendance - that means they have been in school every day, both morning and afternoon so far this year. 

 

As you know our aim this year is to improve our punctuality. Last year, at this stage our lateness level was 1.11% whereas this year it is 0.88%. That's a great improvement and I hope we can sustain this improvement throughout the rest of the year.

Attendance for Academic Year 2019/20 - End of Half Term 1

Our attendance target for this academic year is 97%.  

I am pleased to say that our whole school attendance is currently 97.62%, so we are well on target! Well done everyone.

Here is the attendance for each year group this half term:

 

Year Group Attendance

Reception

98.00%
Year 1 97.91%
Year 2 97.71%
Year 3 97.44%
Year 4 98.38%
Year 5 97.48%
Year 6 96.87%

 

I am particularly impressed with Year 4 and Reception who have achieved 98%, that’s fantastic. Year 6 were just below the target of 97% but they were very close. I am sure by the end of term they can get to 97%. Overall all year groups have done very well. We also have 280 children who currently have 100% attendance - that means they have been in school every day, both morning and afternoon so far this year. 

 

One area which we can improve on is our punctuality. I have noticed that there have been 265 occasions where children have arrived late to school so far this term. Please remember the bell for the start of school goes at 8.40am and children should arrive in plenty of time. I hope that we will improve on our whole school punctuality over the next half term.

 

Thank you for your support regarding pupil attendance. It is really important that we work together to ensure that every child’s attendance is as high as possible.

Reception and Year 6 didn't quite reach the target of 97%, but they really weren't far away.

 

We also had 35 children who had 100% attendance - that means they were in school everyday, both morning and afternoon. Congratulations if you were one of those children!

 

Keep an eye on our website homepage; we will be publishing our attendance each half term. We will also be setting our attendance targets for the new academic year (2019/2020) very soon.
