November attendance and punctuality initiative
There are 20 school days in November and we are launching an initiative to make every one of these days count through excellent attendance and punctuality for all pupils.
During the month of November, our aim is to have 100% punctuality for all pupils. Every child who achieves at least 19 out of 20 marks for being on time will be rewarded with 20 smileys (one late mark is allowed during the 20 day period). Any class with at least 95% punctuality in November will receive 20 minutes extra Golden Time.
We must also try to improve attendance, especially following the recent periods of absence we have had. Every child who achieves at least 96% attendance in November will be rewarded with 20 smileys. Any class with at least 96% attendance in November will receive 20 minutes extra Golden Time.
Children with excellent attendance and punctuality in November could gain 40 smileys and 40 minutes extra Golden Time. Please support us to improve attendance and punctuality by making sure your child is on time for school every day and attends school unless there is a very good medical reason why they must be absent.
