Attendance

Attendance - How well are we doing?
Attendance Monthly Update - Autumn 2018

We are extremely proud of our Attendance Success in 2017-18! Thank you parents and pupils for supporting us.

 

Attendance continued to remain a high priority for the school and we are very proud of the commitment and support from our parents and pupils  to improving  the 95.17% attendance figure achieved in 2016-2017.

 

We value our pupil voice and therefore consulted with our pupils through the School Standards Action Group (SSAG) on our half termly attendance challenges and rewards to enable all pupils succeed. As a result the following ideas were introduced and implemented very successfully:

- New 100% attendance prizes

- New 97% attendance prizes -  pencils, pens, notebook, rulers and badges.

 

All pupils were rewarded each half term for continuing to support our attendance initiatives and each Friday we celebrated classes with the highest attendance and shared this information with our parents/carers in our weekly newsletters.

 

The feedback from our pupils and parents was extremely positive and these will continue to be in place for 2018-2019.

 

The results of the challenges are below.

To thank you for your fantastic support and commitment to improving attendance through:

 

  • ensuring your child is on time for school

  • booking appointments where possible at the beginning and end of the school day

  • not booking holidays in term time

     

We also introduced special summer attendance rewards were arranged for all pupils. 

 

- Nursery and Reception pupils enjoyed their Teddy Bear's Picnic.

- Year 1 and Year 2 had a wonderful adventure at Cantref Farm in Brecon.

- KS2 thoroughly enjoyed all Heatherton Adventure Park ,Tenby had to offer.

How does school absence impacts on your child's  attendance percentages?

 

Number of days absent from school

Child’s attendance at the end of the year

If your child has 1 day off school during the year

…their attendance will be 99.5%

If your child has 2 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be 99%

If your child has 5 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be 97.4%

If your child has 10 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be 95%

If your child has 15 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be 92.4%

If your child has 20 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be 90% and school will regularly monitor attendance and with the School Attendance Officer

If your child has more than 20 days off school during the year

…their attendance will be below 90% and school will be I contact with the School Attendance Officer and Education Welfare Service. This may lead to sanctions, court and penalties against the parents

 

Please remember the importance of good attendance and punctuality and do not allow your child/children to take time off school for minor ailments - particularly those which would not prevent you from going to work

 

Pupils should come to school every day.

i) A pupil should only be absent if the reason is "unavoidable." Every half-day absence from school has to be classified by the school, as either authorised or unauthorised. This is why information about the cause of each absence is always required.

ii) There will be times when a pupil cannot go to school, this is known as an ‘Authorised Absence', and the school must be told in advance. We can only authorise an absence if:

 

  • A child is too ill to attend school
  • They have a dental or medical appointment
  • There is a bereavement of a relative
  • There is a need for religious observance
  •  

iii) Unauthorised absences are those, which the school does not consider reasonable and for which no permission has been given. This includes:


• going shopping
• truancy
• absences which have never been properly explained
• children who arrive at school too late to get a mark


Providing a note may not be sufficient if the reason given is not "unavoidable.”
 

Reminder: we do not authorise holidays during term time and you are likely to be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice if you take your child out of school for 5 days/10 sessions ( 2 sessions = 1 day) or more in a term.

 

Attendance Matters - Missing School is Missing out!

 

Why does attendance matter?
Attending School on a regular basis is the key to your child doing well at school and will set them up with good routines for later life and
the working world, as well as giving your child the opportunity to:
• Make lots of friends and feel included;
• Learn new things and develop many skills;
• Increase confidence and self esteem;
• Improve social skills;
• Achieve potential and fulfil aspirations

 

 

The School Standards Action Group - SSAG- have reviewed how we promote attendance and have decided on some key changes.

  1.  Attendance Challenges will reward 100% attendance and attendance that is 96% or higher.
  2. The first "Attendance Challenge" will be rewarded in October.
  3. Attendance Rewards will then be given out monthly.
  4. There will be two main celebrations and trips for 100% Attendance - December and July.
  5. Attendance and Punctuality Certificates will be presented in Merit Assembly - Classes will receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award. However attendance will only be rewarded if it is 96% or higher.
