Arriving late to school

When a child arrives late to school it can be very disruptive to your child, the teacher and other children in the class.

Being late to school can have a considerable impact over the whole school year:-

 5 minutes late every day = 3 days lost a year

 10 minutes late every day = 6.5 days lost a year

 15 minutes late every day = 10 days lost a year

We understand that the school mornings can be hectic, but when your child is late for school they really are missing out on vital parts of their education. We have been asked to monitor children who are persistently late with the possibility of Penalty Notice’s being issued if need be.

Any child arriving late to school MUST be signed in by an accompanying adult at the school office.

 

Holidays during the School Term

Due to changes in the law that came into practice from September 2013, The Governing Body of Christ Church are unable to authorise requests for holidays in term time.

The Education (Pupil Registration)(England)(Amendment) Regulations 2013 amends the earlier 2006 Regulations to clarify that leave of absence during term time shall not be granted unless there are "exceptional circumstances".

For any request for absence during the school year to be considered an "exceptional circumstance" this must be put in writing, well in advance of the proposed time off and marked for the attention of The Headteacher. It must be emphasised that reasons of cost and/or another family member booking the holiday are not acceptable exceptional circumstances.

EVERY EFFORT SHOULD BE MADE TO TAKE FAMILY HOLIDAYS DURING THE SCHOOL HOLIDAY PERIODS - A TOTAL OF 13 WEEKS DURING A SCHOOL YEAR!

(Please note any unauthorised absences taken can result with the issue of a Penalty Notice by the Authorities School Attendance Service.)

With your support we know that we can continue to keep our attendance high and help to........ MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT!

Attendance Awards

We have both individual attendance and house attendance rewards to encourage good attendance.

Individual attendance awards

Each half term childen who have an individual attendance record of 100% receive a certitifcate in the attendance assembly.

If a child goes on to achieve 100% attendance for a full term they receive a certificate and a badge in the attendance assembly.

At the end of the school year, those children who have 100% attendance for the year, receive a 100% pin badge and also a special reward.

House attendance awards

Each half term the houses battle it out against each other to achieve the best attendance. At the end of each half term, the House with the highest attendance are rewarded with milkshakes.

We also post the House with the highest attendance on the weekly newsletter.
