Attendance and punctuality

Dear families

Thank you for preparing the children so well for their return to school, we have had a brilliant start to the week. Your children are a real credit to you all. The children have really enjoyed seeing their friends and getting back to life in school.

We know it’s hard to get back into the school routines having spent so long at home, and the staff are doing an excellent job. Whilst our attendance and punctuality is still one of the highest in the country at the moment at over 98%, we do want to keep it at this outstanding level. It is evident from these attendance figures that our families really value their children’s learning by prioritising learning and wellbeing. In order to catch up with missed school and reduce the risk of transmission of the coronavirus Covid-19 in our school and community, we will ask you to continue to;

· Arrive promptly at school in the morning. Gates will close at 8:55am

· Ensure all medical appointments are booked outside of school hours

· Plan for all holidays to take place during the school holidays

Our website has been upgraded this week to include an improved video sharing facility. Playlists are now becoming available for curriculum leader videos and assemblies. In addition, we are working towards a paperless office The website is currently used to publish some forms and we are developing better digital solutions. We plan by the end of the year to have a more fluid system for both payments and forms.

Thank you again for all your support, we love having the children back at school.

Best wishes
Mrs Rosen
