The government and Ofsted have identified the need for schools to improve attendance and recommend that each child should achieve 96%. Each week we give Attendance Certificates to the classes who have achieved the highest (Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2) as well as individual certificates (and a special treat) to those pupils who have achieved 100% throughout the academic year.
We have recently appointed an Attendance Officer, Mrs Annie Docherty, to help us achieve our target. She will be in school every Wednesday and will contact the parents of those children whose attendance could be improved. Please see below her welcome letter.
