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 learning mascots:
Herman the Crab – Our Reception mascot
Sheldon the Shrimp – One of our Key Stage 2 mascots
Steve the Lobster – One of our Key Stage 2 mascots
Obbie the Octopus – Our Key Stage 1 mascot
Sherman the Shrimp (Sheldon’s twin brother) – One of our Key Stage 2 mascots
Dave the Crab – One of our Key Stage 2 mascots
All of our sea creatures 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, our Reception classes will compete to win Herman; one of our Year 1 and 2 classes will win Obbie and our Key Stage 2 classes will vie to win Sheldon, Sherman, Steve or Dave! The class with the best attendance will not only have one of our mascots spending a week with them in their class but they will also win milkshakes and cookies on a Friday. Yum!
The winners of our Amazing Attendance Award will be announced every Friday in the Star of the Week assembly.Parent Information Sheet – Attendance
