Last term we challenged our students to raise the attendance levels across the school, and if they did there would be a reward of a whole school non-uniform day. They rose to the challenge and succeeded and it was a fantastic atmosphere in the school that day. We had a number of spot prizes for attendance too including a breakfast treat for the top attending form.
When we were thinking about rewarding individuals for attendance we were conscious to be equitable for all. We recognise that there will be occasions when students need to have time off; for example for genuine illness or treatment for medical conditions - our students’ attendance is about more than a percentage in the data. Therefore, we thought a great way to issues some prizes on this occasion was to turn to the form tutors who know their students the best. We said, ‘please nominate a selection of students that have either: had great attendance for them, have improved their attendance or have shown a great attitude to support the idea that ‘every school day counts.’ These nominees were treated to a doughnut at break-time, handed out by our Year 9 House Leaders.
We will be continuing to reward great attendance as the year goes on to help our students understand how good attendance is going to help their academic success and is going to get them ready for the expectations of the world of work.
We thank our parents for supporting our drive to improve attendance; so that we can ensure the best quality education for your children.
