Parent Forum Meeting
At the Parent Forum Meeting today, attendance matters were discussed. Questions were raised regarding term time holidays, medical appointments, attendance figures and statistics as well as other general attendance issues regarding our school. Please look out for the Attendance Newsletter next week which will give further information about the issues discussed.
September Attendance
Our attendance target of 95.7% was exceeded in September. The level of attendance attained is 96%. Majority of the absences recorded were due to illness, although a small percentage of absence was due to term time holidays. We would also inform you that during the Autumn Term we have sent two requests to the Local Authority to issue Fixed Penalty Fines.
Fat Ball Sale
The children in Class 9 have been busy making ‘Fat Balls’ for the birds. After a sale in their classroom they have raised £20.23. Well done!
Class of the Week – 16th – 20th November 2015
This week our attendance figures have been lower than normal due to a high level of winter coughs and colds. Class 9 have achieved an attendance level of 97.9% and are ‘Class of the Week’. Well done!
