Welcome to our Attendance Section
Here at Croft Junior School we believe in working closely with families and pupils to encourage regular school attendance. We are confident that if your child achieves good attendance and arrives in school on time every day, they will have the best opportunities to learn.
Achieving Good Attendance
Croft Junior School endeavours to provide a positive learning environment that is safe, happy and supports your child’s growth and development. When a parent or carer enrols their child at our school they have a legal duty to ensure their child attends school regularly. There are good reasons especially illness, which make attendance at school sometimes difficult. At Croft Junior School, we monitor attendance regularly and we send out absence reports to keep you informed on your child’s attendance. If your child’s attendance becomes a concern, we will arrange a meeting to discuss reasons for absence and collaboratively identify strategies to support improvements. On occasions, we may involve local authority external agencies to further support families to ensure that children receive their full entitlement to education.
Rewarding Good Attendance
At Croft Junior School we love to celebrate good attendance with our children. There are many opportunities to celebrate throughout the school year, such as:
- Termly 100% attendance certificates
- End of Year 100% attendance certificates with a reward for each pupil
- Certificates for most improved attendance each half term
- An attendance cup presented weekly to the class with the highest attendance percentage
- Celebratory phone calls for increased attendance
