Attendance in the Early Years

For children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and it is the duty of our school and parents/carers to make sure that each child is at school, on time, on every day that the school is open - unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
At Crowlands Primary School we are aiming to achieve an attendance target in the range of 96 – 100% to meet National standards.
Helping to create a pattern of regular attendance is everybody’s responsibility – parents, pupils and all members of school staff.

At Crowlands we expect its pupils to:

  • To attend regularly and on time.
  • To be prepared adequately for the school day.
  • To comply with the school policies and procedures.

At Crowlands we expect our parents/carers to:

  • To encourage their children to attend school every day, on time.
  • To contact the school on the first day of absence.
  • To arrange holidays and medical appointments outside school hours.
  • To regularly update emergency contact details.

At Crowlands there are several strategies in place to encourage children to attend school every day:

  • Weekly class attendance is celebrated in a school assembly for both Reception/Key Stage One and Key Stage Two children and a trophy is given to the winning class.
  • Displays celebrate class attendance through the school.
  • Attendance winners are shared on the school website and sent to parents/carers in the weekly newsletters.
  • Within a year group classes compete against each other to earn a letter for every day that the class attendance is 100% to complete the slogan ‘Everyday Counts!’
    The class who completes this first receives a reward.
  • The 100 Club -  100 club raffle - every child who is here every day for a week gets put in a raffle which is drawn in every Monday assembly with a small prize given
  • This is combined with In To Win an initiative where all children with monthly 100% attendance have a photo taken and this is then randomly generated and the winning photo wins a prize - this will be done in phases
  • 100% termly attendance certificates along with a treat for those children who achieve this
  • If a child is late, they cannot be included in the 100 club to promote punctuality
  • We understand the integral part that parents/carers play in ensuring that attendance remains high we extend our rewards to families to recognise this. Every half term/term, we will select families to win one of the following prizes:

Family Prizes

  • A £15 supermarket voucher for the most improved attendance over the half term (randomly selected from the most improved students during the half term)
  • A £25 supermarket voucher for 97% or above attendance in the academic year to date (one family randomly selected from all 97%+ students termly)
  • A £50 supermarket voucher for 100% attendance in the academic year to date (one family randomly selected from all 100% attendance club students termly)

The above categories mean that any child and their family have a chance to win every half term!

We hope all our families will get involved and we hope to see everyone every day.
