Attendance

Attendance and punctuality
We have worked really hard to improve attendance in recent years and we have been very successful . Our attendance for the academic year 2015/2016 was 97.3%. This is above national average. 14 pupils out of 65 pupils achieved 100% attendance for the year. Last year 2016/2017 our attendance was 97.4%.
​It is really important that children are in school and are on time. Late arrival can set your child up for a difficult start to the day. Take a look at the information below to see what an impact being late or absent actually adds up to - it's quite alarming:
Lateness = Lost Learning

5 minutes late each day = over 3 days lost (over a year)
10 minutes late each day = about 6. 5 days lost
15 minutes late each day = about 10 days lost
20 minutes late each day = about 13 days lost
30 minutes late each day = about 19 days lost!!!!

As few as 19 days lost over a year can significantly reduce your child's chances of success at school!!

Every School Day Counts

100% attendance = 190 school days = 0 weeks absence
95% attendance = 180 school days = 2 weeks absence
90% attendance = 171 school days = 4 weeks absence
85% attendance = 161 school days = 6 weeks absence
80% attendance = 152 school days = more than a half-term lost
75% attendance = 143 school days = more than 9 weeks lost!!!

Please ensure that your child attends school every day!
