It is vitally important that children attend school, as good attendance helps children to develop academically, socially and emotionally.
As a school we have set a target of 96.1% attendance, which is in line with the National Standard. The class with the highest attendance each week receives a star on the chart and when they receive 10 stars they have an activity afternoon of their choice. There are also extra prizes and certificates available at the end of each term for those achieving or exceeding our attendance target. We have also joined forces with NUFC which rewards improving attendance.
Please help us to help your child by encouraging regular school attendance. Regular attendance helps children to develop confidence and to make lasting friendships. Children who regularly miss school without good reason are more likely to become isolated from their friends, underachieve and/or become involved in anti-social behaviour.
