At Churchtown Primary School we believe that regular school attendance is the key to enabling children to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community.
At Churchtown Primary School we expect our pupils’ attendance to be good. In order to achieve this we will:
ï Offer an environment in which pupils feel valued and welcomed. The school’s inclusive ethos ensures pupils feel that their presence in school is important and that they will be missed when they are absent/late
ï Offer an exciting and challenging curriculum for all pupils. Every effort will be made to ensure that learning tasks are matched to pupils’ needs
ï Regularly remind parents (via newsletters, parents’ evenings, annual report etc.) of the importance of good attendance.
We are proud of the opportunities we provide at Churchtown Primary school for our children to develop skills outside of the curriculum.
Each week we look at attendance for each class. A weekly Attendance Champion is then chosen for each year group. This is celebrated on the Champions newsletter and shared with parents. Attendance awards are presented through out the year.
