Monday 23rd October – Friday 27th October marks the first of our Attendance competitions of the year. We are passionate about ensuring pupils recognise the importance of excellent attendance. Recently a report published by the Department for Education showed that where pupils had excellent attendance across KS3 and KS4 their progress was one average double those who would be classed as consistently persistently absent (less than 90%).
As the cold weather comes in we aim to motivate all of our pupils to ensure they are attending each and every day. As a result we are sharing our attendance competition now to encourage pupils to dig deep, no matter what and make the most of their educational experience.
To that end we have three ways that pupils can be rewarded during the final week of term:
- Form Time Competition: Highest average attendance for a Form across the week will receive a special breakfast with Mr Smith during the first week back after half term.
- 100% Attenders: All pupils with 100% for the Half Term will get a free breaktime snack, so the final week will be imperative to achieving this reward.
- Last Week 100%: Everyone with 100% attendance across the final week will be entered into a prize draw for vouchers which will be drawn on the first week back.
Our attendance competitions are always extremely successful and we would like this one to be no different. So make sure you are part of the competition and gaining your jigsaw piece each and every day.
