As a school we constantly monitor attendance, as we want our pupils to benefit from the highest quality education to enable them to excel.  We know that pupils who attend well have the best chances of success academically and socially.  This can only be achieved if pupils attend school regularly and on time.

Our school curriculum  sets out exactly what pupils should be taught at every stage of the year and when a child is absent, they risk developing gaps in their learning.

Our new attendance policy can be found under the policies tab.  Attendance is being monitored in school and you may receive a letter or telephone call if attendance drops below our Trust target of 97%.  We will need to ask for medical evidence of appointments in order to log this appropriately.  

We do not want our attendance monitoring to be a negative experience and would really like to work with families to offer support where needed.  Attendance will be celebrated as a class and whole school in achievement assembly.

Please can we remind parents to notify us either by telephone, leaving a message with the child’s name, class and reason for absence or through Arbor.  Could this be done on every day of your child’s absence.

Any leave of absence during term time will only be granted in exceptional circumstances, authorised by the Headteacher.  Request forms are available from the link below or from the school office and should be submitted to school in advance along with supporting evidence.

Gardening Gang

Our year 5 gardening gang have been hard at work in our gardens. The flowers are looking lovely in the reflection garden. The children are working hard on the allotment garden, there are so many weeds to dig out! Well done for all of the hard work.

Reception Class

Reception have been learning all about people who help them within the community. They also looked at different jobs within the NHS. The children enjoyed dressing up and stepping into role.

Celebration of the Word

Thank you to all parents and friends of Year 5 who attended Celebration of the Word. The theme was Mary the Mother of God.
