As you know, improving attendance is one of our key priorities. It is very important that your child regularly attends school and that they arrive on time. This ensures your child feels included and part of the school day.
We have been set a target in 2018-19 to gain whole school attendance of 97%.
In 2014-15 we gained whole school attendance of 95%, in 2015-16 we gained whole school attendance of 95.4% in 2016-17 we gained whole school attendance of 95.6% and last year in 2017-18 we gained whole school attendance of 95.9%. We are determined this year we will meet this target of 97%!
Throughout the year we will be holding school attendance challenges. Each child with 100% attendance over these weeks will receive a certificate and small prize from our trolley. Look out for the challenge dates on our Newsletters!
The class with the best attendance over the challenges will also receive a hamper full of goodies for you all to share.

Sam and Sammie are our attendance champions. They promote the importance of school attendance to children, parents and schools. The Sam and Sammie resources promote the 6 building blocks in the wall of success – Attendance, Punctuality, Good Habits, talk to the school, talk to each other and ask for help.
The Sam and Sammie program is designed to engage children and their families in recognising the benefits of attending school regularly. Sam and Sammie would like all schools to adopt the Sam and Sammie program and see what a fantastic improvement it makes to attendance and punctuality.
