As attendance is crucial to effective learning and future success, the school places great emphasis on regular attendance in communications with parents. At Norman Pannell, we wish to promote and encourage regular attendance as an essential factor in our pupils’ learning and personal development.
As you may have read in our recent Ofsted inspection report, one of our key targets as a school is to increase the rate of attendance. This is a difficult area to improve as it needs the teamwork of children, staff and importantly, parents. Working together, we can raise attendance at an individual, class and whole school level.
Parents will receive a colour-coded letter each half term to inform you of your child's attendance. Children who have 100% attendance for each half term will take part in a special /treat or activity.
You may have noticed the attendance money jars in our infant hall. Each week the class average is calculated with the class awards. At the end of term classes can total up the amount of money they have accumulated in their jars and spend the money on something nice.
