Working together to improve school attendance is incredibly important as every day is unique at school
None of us want any of our children to miss a single moment, a single opportunity to learn something new.
We all want our children to become safe, healthy and successful grown-ups. To achieve this, it is important that each child attends school every day and is punctual. This is essential for pupils to get the most out of their school experience: learning how to become confident, resilient and knowledgeable in every aspect of life.
We believe that excellent attendance is in everyone’s interest and it is everyone’s responsibility.
Because of this, we would like to introduce you to our two learning mascots:
Obbie the Octopus – Our Key stage 1 mascot
Sheldon the Shrimp – Our Key Stage 2 mascot
Both Obbie and Sheldon love to learn and make sure they come to school every day. They like to try their best and learn as much as possible so that they can be successful when they are grown up.
Each week, the classes will compete to win Sheldon or Obbie. The class with the best attendance will not only have Obbie or Sheldon spending a week with them in their class but they will also win milkshakes and cookies on a Friday. Yum!
The winners will be announced every Friday in the Star of the Week assembly.Parent Information Sheet – Attendance Attendance Policy 2022
