Attendance

  • At Nonsuch Primary School, we believe that education is important because it provides our children with the skills needed for life. In order to gain these skills, children need to attend school regularly and punctually – this is both for academic and social reasons.

    As a school we will work closely with children, parents/carers and the local community to resolve attendance issues.

    It is the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure that their child attends school on time, unless there is an authorised reason for their absence.

 

A number of incentives are in place to promote good attendance; these include:
 

  • Each week, children who achieve 100% attendance, have their names added to a tombola. At the end of the term, the Head Pupil pulls out one name from the tombola. This person can choose a prize up to the value of £50.
     

 

Our winner for the Autumn Term 

 

  • Weekly attendance assembly.
  • A reward for the class with the highest attendance each half term.
  • Display board in the entrance to celebrate good attendance.
  • We  have a week dedicated to investigating the importance of good attendance.
  • We report on attendance on the weekly newsletter.


    The school's current target for attendance is 96%.

 

Nonsuch Primary School follow DFE guidance on attendance and Birmingham County Council Policy on term time absence.
