What support do we provide?
All children’s whose attendance falls below 95% are monitored on a regular basis and parents are invited to meet with a member of the welfare team to discuss any reasons for low attendance and possible support that could be offered in order to help this improve. This support could involve pastoral support for the child or early help intervention for the whole family from a multi-agency team.
All children are allocated rewards for attending school. Each child receives a team point for every day that they attend school and team points accrue to be spent on tangible prizes from the reward shop. Classes are also rewarded for good attendance in order to develop a collective responsibility for school attendance, through the PERFECT ATTENDANCE rewards. Every day that the whole class attends school the teacher will allocate a PERFECT ATTENDANCE award and cover one letter from their PERFECT ATTENDANCE display (which is in every classroom). Once the class has all the PERFECT ATTENDANCE letters covered up they are eligible for a class reward, such as games afternoon or extra playtime.
How do children access the support?
All children’s attendance is monitored on a regular basis by the welfare team and families are offered support accordingly on an individual basis.
