Attendance and Punctuality
Good attendance and punctuality to school are extremely important. The attendance team take pride in ensuring that attendance and punctuality are taken seriously here at Kingsley. They work closely with the children and parents supporting families to ensure that we meet or exceed the Government target for attendance of 97%.
We have recently introduced a number of initiatives to motivate the children and to get the parents on board.
Attendance Mini League
Each class will be in competition with each other across their year group to have the best attendance and punctuality to school.
How the league works...
Every week each class is awarded 10 goals, for every child absent (not for medical reasons) the class loses a goal, if 5 or more children are late that week the class will lose a goal.
Each half term the winning class in each year will be awarded the Attendance Mini League Cup – the idea being to encourage team work within the class.
The winners of the Attendance Mini League Cup will be League Champions for the next half term and the whole class will be awarded smilieys.
The Mini League started the beginning of June.
We will upload the League Table each week so that you can join in with your children.
The attendance team are enjoying going round the classes telling them all the scores and encouraging and cheering them to try and beat the other classes in their year. The cup will be presented in assembly and parents of the winning class will be invited to in so that everyone can clap and cheer along with the children – after all the children can’t do it without parent/carer help.
KS1 Competition – Lunch with the Attendance Mascots: Attendance Hippo Annie and Punctuality Hippo Pete
Last half term we told the children all about this new competition and Annie and Pete went round to meet all the children.
They were most excited to meet Annie and Pete and about the prospect of winning lunch with the Hippo’s.
So how does it work...
Every child that is in 100% AND on time every day this half term will have their name put into a hat and we will draw the names of 4 children from year group to have a special lunch with the Hippo’s.
KS2 Competition – Posh Nosh lunch
For KS2 we wanted something a little more grown up so they will have a Posh Nosh lunch. Like the KS1 competition all the children with 100% attendance AND who arrive to school on time will be put into a draw. There will be 3 winners from each year group.
The winners will have lunch at a table laid out as if they were at a restaurant with the added bonus of having Mrs Brooks-Enver and Miss Vaciannia as their waitresses, bringing them their food and ensuring their glasses are always topped up.
Good luck to all the children, we hope these new initiatives will help make the business of attending and getting to school on time fun and rewarding for all.
