Attendance

We are proud of the high levels of attendance in our school.

2015/2016 – 96.1%

2014/2015 – 96.47

 Help us to reach our target of 97.0% in 2016 /2017 by making doctors/dentist appointments outside of the school day, and not taking holidays during term time.

In line with government regulations, the school is not allowed to authorise any holidays during term time unless under exceptional circumstances.

Each half-term, the class with highest attendance wins £50.00. The children vote on how they should spend their money. Previous class winners have dressed up as superheroes, visited a soft play venue, had a tea party in class and enjoyed a picnic in the park.

Last half term, Class 7 (Mr Jefferies’ class) won the prize for the highest attendance.  They visited Toby Carvery in Darlington where they took part in the ‘Chef School’, which involved learning about the importance of  healthy eating, having a balanced diet and also played some fun games involving food.
