Classopoly Attendance and Punctuality

What's the state of play?

15/03/2019 - A warm welcome to you and thank you for tuning into the Classopoly attendance and punctuality page for an update.  We would like to thank you all for continuing to ensure that your wonderful children attend school, and on time, regularly.  It is really having an impact on their progress and attainment.  The past three weeks have seen amazing whole class attendance figures for most classes.  Please remember that if your child arrives very late for school it could mean that they have to be recorded as missing a full morning in the register - this has meant, on one or two occasions that a class has missed the 96% target.  Everyone needs to be in school on time please.  To help you, some considerable time ago,  we decided to open the classroom doors ten minutes earlier than the start of school day - they are open at 8.45am and this means all children have the chance to be sitting at their desk and ready for the first lesson to commence at 8.55am. 


There have been some great rewards for classes  - please see pictures below - our children are thoroughly enjoying the Classopoly Attendance reward system which is contributing to the school's overall rise in attendance - we are now achieving 95.1% heading upwards towards the nationally set target of 96%.  We still have a way to travel but we are absolutely positive that by working together we can all get there.  Your children benefit so much from regular attendance and good punctuality - keep up the good efforts and thank you!

The end of the first Spring Term 2019 in February saw us reach the mid-year point of the academic year 2018/19 - how is our attendance progressing?


We are pleased to report that school has improved on its overall attendance by 0.4% - it now stands at 94.9%.  The number of children who are classed as "persistently absent" has also improved - but it needs to improve even more!  Children need to be in school every day in order to have the best possible chance of achieving their potential and we are here to help.  We still have some way to go in order to achieve the target but with consistent efforts, working together we can all do this - it can only benefit our children and thank you for your efforts.  It is so important - your children love being in and their class taking a turn on Classopoly when they manage to achieve the target of 96% or above.


In the week after returning from the February half term school managed to achieve 96.8% - amazing result and this meant every class took a turn on Classopoly and won a reward - this is what they won on the board:
