Termly Family Attendance Trip

 

 

 

Congratulations to Nicole and family and  Jacob and family, who were last half terms Amazing Attendees! Both families enjoyed a wonderful evening at Gandey’s Circus at Aintree Racecourse during the half term break. Keep up the fabulous work!

It could be you…to have a chance of winning our next family surprise, you must be in school every day next half term!

One of our aims is  to have as many children on 100% attendance as possible; the reason for this is because children who attend school every day are more likely to learn more, have more friends and get a good job when they are older.

That’s why we say…It’s good to be green!

If children have good attendance levels, they are likely to achieve better exam results. Research shows that even a few days missed from school can mean a drop of a GCSE grade across all subjects. Good attendance also shows potential employers that a student is reliable, which may help improve their chances of getting a better job in the future. Our message is simple – give school attendance 100%.

Parents and carers have a responsibility for making sure their child goes to school regularly and doesn’t miss out on their education. In addition, Head Teachers will not authorise requests for days off in term-time, other than in exceptional circumstances, which do not include holidays, birthdays or visiting relatives.

It is that time of year where coughs and colds are on the increase. We understand that when feeling under the weather, staying at home can feel like the best form of recovery but as the NHS says, “not every illness needs to keep your child from school.” Please see our ‘Attendance, Punctuality and Holidays’ page for the recommendations from the Public Health Agency for common illness that often, but not always necessary, result in absences from school.
