Attendance

Last year we achieved an attendance score of 92.6% across the whole school.

This years attendance target is 94%

Spring Term update - 93.3 %

Given that Winter brings with it coughs and colds this is a good start but we need your support to achieve our target by the end of Summer!

As a school we work really hard to make sure all our pupils make the progress they are capable of. To do this we need to work with you to make sure pupils attend school fit and well and ready to learn .

We have a great attendance record in school and for the last three years it is above that of similar schools. However as you will be used to hearing - we can always do better !

In addition to our whole school attendance target we aim to achieve above a 90% attendance rate for each child across the school year .Below this is classed as persistent absence and requires us to respond to prevent further education being missed. Of course we know some pupils can be quite poorly and we work with families to support them manage this. What we are asking is that you make a special effort to send your child in when they are fit and well.

If you are concerned about your child's attendance or need advice on getting them ready for school contact Jackie Johnson for some top tips and suggestions!
