Regular attendance is of the upmost importance to the Staff and Governors at Gloucester Road Nursery & Primary School.
We have an attendance award which is given out 3 times during the year. Children need to attain a 95% attendance in that term.
95% attendance is a figure that this Government sees as acceptable and all schools are directed to ensure that this level, through reward systems and excellent communication between the school and home are met.
In addition to the termly award the school
- Contact parents every day if their child is absent
- Hold family meetings if parents are persistently struggling with attendance
- Visit the homes of families who have very poor attendance and offer support
- Have regular meetings and report to governors on figures, examine closely trends and patterns
