Punctuality Can I please ask parents to ensure that children are arriving in school ready to start the day punctually at 8.50. We are regularly finding children are arriving late which is unse+ling for them, the class and the teacher. Lunch money If you are expec-ng your child to have a school lunch can you please ensure they have the money with them in the morning. One of ways that parents and carers can support us with your child(ren)’s learning is ensuring that your child(ren) are in school as much as possible and absence is kept to an absolute minimum. As the table below shows even missing just half a day per fortnight, leads to your child(ren) missing a whole half a term’s learning over 5 years. We know that there are 'mes that children need to stay away for their own good, but please ensure your child is in school as much as possible, it really is one of the best ways you can help with their learning and their future. Attendance Over a fortnight Over the school year Over 5 Years 95% = absent for ½ day 1 ¼ weeks ½ a term 90% = absent for 1 day 4 weeks ½ a school year 85% = absent for 1 ½ days 6 weeks ¾ of a school year 80% = absent for 2 days 7 ½ weeks 1 school year 75% = absent for 2 ½ days 10 weeks 1 school year + ½ a term 70% = absent for 3 days 11 ¼ weeks 1 school year + 1 term A Church of England Voluntary Aided Junior School - Achieve Care and Enjoy
