The week beginning Monday 2nd December saw our first attendance week being held. During the week, assemblies were focussed on the importance of good attendance and all of the children worked towards completing their ‘Early Bird’ sheet by getting to school by 8.50am every day. Parents were also asked to complete a questionnaire about their child’s sleeping habits, how they got to school and other issues around attendance. At the end of the week there was an Early Bird winner from each class, children with improved attendance or punctuality received a certificate recognising their improvement and one lucky parent won a tub of sweets for completing the questionnaire. The next newsletter, in January, will tell you some of the findings of the questionnaire as well as any impact of the attendance week itself.
