If a pupil is absent for 3 days or more the school may carry out a home visit, even if a reason has been given.

Attendance-Policy-2023-2024

Parental information: Important points to know

At any point during the absence a home visit may take place. (In line with safeguarding procedures we may ask to see your child).

Absences may not be authorised without evidence if a pupil’s attendance is below 96%.

Leave during term time will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances and the Headteacher uses their discretion.

If you require leave in term time you must request this in writing by completing our leave in term time request form, which can be obtained at the school office. This is to be done prior to any absence or booking that may need to be made.

Please remember that school starts at 8.50am and your child should be in school for this time every day.

It is a parent’s responsibility to ensure their child attends School regularly. We aim for at least 96%, in line with the government guidance.

Let us introduce to you Miss Fletcher’s Attendance Team

The team meet up to discuss attendance as a whole over the school and look at how we can reward good attendance with the children’s point of view.

Rewards

We reward children for excellent attendance every Term (Autumn, Spring and Summer) with a special treat, ideas are always welcomed by the children so this can vary from term to term.Each child in the winning class will get a raffle ticket towards our Summer prize. 

Each year every child who achieves 96% attendance and above is entered into our to our Big Summer surprise, this is TBC as we are asking the children what they would like. A raffle ticket will also go into the Summer prize draw for each child. 

Super September – Every child who achieves 100% throughout the month of September receives a reward, this is usually a movie and pizza night at school or certificate and prize. A raffle ticket as well. 

Jump into January – Every child who has a total of 96% attendance or above for the whole academic year up to the end of January will receive a reward. A raffle ticket as well. 

Just do it July – This is where we have a big push on attendance to challenge ourselves for the Summer prize draw.

To help parents / carers keep up to date with their child’s attendance we send out half termly registration certificates.

Online Safety

Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.

Any online safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our Online Safety Policy. Online safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the online safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

It’s essential to be realistic – banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
