2019/20 Attendance Update

Term 4

 

As always, we are continuing to push the importance of attendance in our community. Good progress and attainment starts with coming to school every single day. Although our whole school attendance isn’t as good as last year, we continue to have high expectations and we are committed to reaching our whole school target of 97%. Currently, our whole school attendance is 95.2% which is below the national           expectation of 96%.

 

Everyday, we are encouraging our children to wash their hands after going to the toilet or after coughing and sneezing. Mrs Thomas even lead an amazing assembly about how germs are spread whilst using    glitter! We hope this will reduce the amount of illness in our school. Overleaf is a guide that we are using to teach our children on how to wash their hands.

Term 3

 

We hope that you all had a fantastic break and a happy new year. It has been amazing to see all of our children come back to school with energy and a thirst for learning. The staff have been busy preparing    lessons and exciting opportunities for our children. The only way that the children get to experience all of it is by attending school every single day.

 

Nationally, 96% equates to having ‘good attendance’. If a child has an attendance of below 90% then they are a ‘persistent absentee’. This means they are not accessing the learning and therefore gaps will appear in the children's understanding. If your child has been absent from school then it is important to speak to the class teacher about what could be done at home to catch up. Furthermore, if your child’s attendance is below 90% then an attendance letter will be sent home asking for it to improve. St Mary Redcliffe Primary School has a strict attendance policy because we really care about our children’s education.

 

Below are the attendance figures for Term 2. Congratulations to 3 Juniper for having the best attendance in Term 2.

Authorised absence refers to absence approved by the Headteacher or Assistant Headteacher.                                  

For example: sickness or religious observance.

 

Unauthorised absence refers to absence unapproved by the Headteacher or Assistant Headteacher.                            

For example: holidays during term time  that is not an exceptional circumstance or child is absent with no message from the family explaining why.

 

Term 2 Update

Since the start of the term, we have seen a decrease in the number of times the children are late to school. We have also seen a drop in unauthorised absences compared to Term 1. This is fantastic!

Illness is the most common reason why children are absent from school. Please ensure that the children come to school wrapped up warm for the cold winter months ahead!

The SMRP Walking Bus

 

The SMRP is a FREE service that enables children to come to school before the start of the day. All       children that come on the Walking Bus will enter Breakfast Club for FREE.

 

On average, the Walking Bus collects approximately 15 children every day. Each year the Walking Bus gets more and more popular.

 

At 7:40am, children, parents and carers meet the Walking Bus staff (Usually Mr Williams, Mrs Thomas, Mr Fry or Miss Dudding) on Burton Close near the Redcliffe Children’s Centre. 

 

At 7:45am, the staff and children walk to school together. At approximately 8am, the children and staff    arrive at school just in time for the start of Breakfast Club.

 

If you would like to know more about the Walking Bus and how to join then please contact the office or speak to Mr Chris Williams (Family Link Worker), Mr Kevin Fry (Assistant Headteacher and Attendance Leader) or Mrs Thomas (Headteacher).

 

 

 

 

 

2019/20 Term 1 - Attendance Update

 

Last year, our overall attendance was 96% which is excellent! Well done and thank you to those who came to school everyday. We discovered that when children come to school consistently they make good or better progress as well as make stronger relationships with their peers. 

 

This year, our target is 97% - this is a percentage that we have never reached as a school. I believe that we can do it! 

 

In order to achieve this we need to make sure our children come to school as often as they can. We have designed a brand new curriculum for the children to enjoy so it is imperative that they do not miss out on a single moment of learning. 

 

If your child is going to be absent from school please could you contact the school as soon as possible to inform us. Where possible, please could appointments be made out of school hours, during weekends or holiday time. 

 

If you require to take your child out of school during term time you will need to complete a holiday request form. This will let us know the reasons behind the absence, which children are involved and the dates of the trip. We hold the right to unauthorise holiday requests based on the reasons given. If an absence has been unauthorised for 4 or more days this could lead to a penalty notice being submitted to the Bristol City Council. If you would like to talk to someone about a proposed trip then please do not hesitate to contact Mr Kevin Fry who is the attendance leader. 

 

We hope that you have had an excellent start to the year.
