In order for children to achieve and make progress, it is vital they come to school every day. We can only do this if we all work together – attendance really is a team effort!
At Featherstone All Saints we believe we can all be a HERO (Here, Everyday, Ready, On time)
The ‘attendance team’ meet on a weekly basis to review individual and group attendance across school. We also rely on all staff to notice patterns of irregular school attendance or to help us identify improvements that have been made.
We celebrate good attendance weekly in our celebration assembly. Children are rewarded for their good attendance through a range of individual and whole class prizes.
Each week we track the attendance of individual classes. The weekly winning class receive 'Reward Time' on a Friday afternoon. The class are able to choose what this might be. Choices include an extra playtime, board games, iPad time. They are also awarded a balloon which are displayed in the hall and added together at the end of each term to win a whole class prize.
Week beginning 12th September winners were Year 6 and Year 3 who both achieved 97.93% attendance. The children chose an extra playtime on Friday afternoon.
Last Term, the winning year group was Year 2 winning the highest weekly attendance 4 times. The children celebrated with a pizza and movie afternoon. Well done Year 2!
Featherstone All Saints does not authorise holidays taken in term time and works in partnership with the Education Welfare Service (EWS) regarding the issue of Penalty Fines. Pupils have an entitlement to an education, not a term time holiday. Click here to view our school's Attendance Policy
