A caring Christian family, striving to achieve our best

Attendance

Our school has a target to achieve 97% attendance over the course of the year...help us to achieve our target by coming to school every day you possibly can!

In order for children to get the greatest benefit from their education in school, it is important that they have good attendance and that they arrive on time for school each day. As children grow and prepare for the next stages in their education, and in employment in years to come, children need to see good attendance and punctuality as important values that should be valued by themselves, their parents/carers and by those around them. At All Saints’ we will do all that we can to encourage good attendance and punctuality. We will recognise 100% attendance (and very near misses) both termly and annually.

 

The school governors set a target for whole school attendance of 97%. This target has consistently been met over the past three years.  Where families are unable to meet our high expectations for attendance and punctuality, we will discuss this with families and put into place effective strategies to support in bringing about improvements. It is worth noting that as from September 2015 the government defined a persistent absentee as a child with attendance of 90% and below.

At the end of the spring term attendance is as follows:

 

At present we are below our school target for attendance, and lower than our attendance has been over the past few years. We know we have had many children in school with chicken pox, which has affected attendance data, but ask that parents do ensure they bring children into school whenever they are well enough. Every day a child misses affects their education!
