ATTENDANCE POLICY

Constant monitoring of children's attendance

At The West Park Academy we view excellent attendance and punctuality as vitally important for the learning and progress of the children. Your child’s time at school is very valuable, they only get the chance once! It is therefore very important that they miss as little school as possible.

Research shows that children who have good school attendance are more likely to do well in the future. Regular attendance also helps children to develop their confidence and make and keep lasting friendships.

Improving Attendance remains one of our biggest target areas as an Academy and as such we celebrate good attendance. At the end of each week the class with the highest attendance receive the attendance trophy to keep in their class for the following week. We have a chart on the wall in the hall for each class, with an arrow  which points to their attendance achievement for that week.

We have a termly presentation of 100% attendance certificates and children who have got 100% at the end of the school year receive a special certificate and will go on a visit paid for by the school.

Thank you for your support in getting your child into school on time everyday.
