At Cedars Park Primary School, we have high expectations of attendance from all pupils. We strive for every child to be in school every day. Regular attendance is essential to ensure children reach their potential both academically and socially.
The Department for Education has issued new and stricter guidelines for absences to which schools must abide:
“Regular attendance is crucial to raising and maintaining high attainment. If pupils do not come to school, they cannot learn what is taught in a lesson, practise what has been taught, or improve on their performance. There is a clear correlation. Pupils who attend regularly achieve more highly.” (OFSTED Framework section 4.3)
There will be certificates for children who achieve 100% attendance for 1,2 or 3 terms.
Bronze Awards are for those children who achieve 100% attendance for 1 term during the academic year.
Silver Awards are given to those pupils who achieve 100% attendance for any 2 terms during the academic year.
Gold Awards are for those who attend school every day for the entire academic year.
