It’s important that children attend school regularly and on time. At Brotherton and Byram Community Primary Academy, we recognise that excellent attendance leads to excellent achievement.
To promote whole school attendance, every week the classes who achieve above the government’s national average for primary school attendance are celebrated in assembly. We use a Classopoly board for classes to gain rewards for their excellent attendance based on a monopoly board theme. The children love this!
We are aware that we couldn’t improve our attendance figures without your support, and we very much appreciate parents who promote these good habits of punctuality and attendance. It is recognised where children miss chunks of learning or don’t have a calm prompt start to the day it significantly impacts on their ability to learn and make progress. Also by getting children into these good routines around attendance it stays with them as they go through the education system and onward into adult life. It is important to us that we work in partnership with you to ensure your children are in school every day and on time.
Where families are struggling with this we are always here to support and advise where we can. Please come and speak to us if you are having difficulties getting your child into school.
Congratulations to Class Derwent (Year 3 & 4 children) who are our Classopoly attendance champions in school this week with 100%! Special mention to Ouse and Foss classes who are also above our school target of 96%.
Thank you for your continued support on this.
