Welcome back to all our pupils and families
In 2018 we are aiming for our pupils to attend as much as is realistically possible so they can thrive in learning new skills, making new friends and having fun. Whether its in school; college or a work environment studies show how our confidence is improved if we are if we are actively engaged in a regular and positive routine. There is nothing more important when giving your child the best start in life by bringing them to school everyday. Receiving the National Curriculum is just one aspect of coming to school.... It also helps to develop children's social skills, sparks creativity, teaches discipline and routine, builds immune systems and importantly, gives children the chance to be independent.
140 Children are being invited to our inflatable assault course on January 23rd to celebrate achieving excellent attendance and no lates last term. 2 days absent or less with no lates and your child will be involved!!! More details to follow.
Exciting news for Attendance….
We strive for all pupils to be above 96% in their attendance as we want to be the same or better than other schools in the country and beat the National Average.
We have extended our reward system so that anyone over 96% with no lates can be involved. At the start of each term we run a report for the previous term which tells us who is selected for the trip or the fun activity at school. This usually takes place at the very start of the following term.
To translate this into real days….. this accounts for 2 days per term with no lates. Please remind your child of this, we hope it encourages a quicker return to school when children are off with common viruses and ailments.
Please note that the termly raffle for the £50 voucher will still stand for the exceptional 100% pupils.
We hope that many more children can now be involved in the celebration!
Autumn Term Wed 6th September – Wed 20th December 17

On time Class Battle
We know how hard the school run can be... getting children up, dressed and fed; getting ready for work; battling rush hour traffic and often battling all kinds of weather.
When children are persistently late they miss huge chunks of work over the year which causes them to fall behind. Key Stage 1 take phonics every morning and Key Stage 2 focus on spelling - both important lessons of the day. Some children sadly miss these lessons everyday or turn up halfway through which disrupts the learning for everyone else.
After half term we will be holding an interclass competition - the class with the least lates each week will be added to our weekly chart in the hall. The winning class every half term will be awarded with an exclusive own clothes day.
Attendance Reward Activity
Tuesday 26th September 66 children will be spending time on our bouncy castle to celebrate 100% attendance, no lates/one session missed only. We'd love more to join the party next time .....
What an amazing start to the year - our first full week back and we were already over the National Average of 96% with a fantastic 96.4%!!!!!!!!!!! We are feeling positive that the rest of the year we will continue to be in line with the National Average. Charlie Top Banana's is also happy to see so many children back in school, eager to learn and have fun.
2016/17 Attendance Overview
School attendance for the year has finished at 93.8%. 2.2% are unauthorised absences and 4% are authorised.
We hope you will help us to reach the National Average of 96% next year and only keep your children off when necessary.
We hope you have a relaxing break and your children come back refreshed on Wednesday 6th September. These first few days are crucial for a child settling into their new classes and routines. Good luck to all our leavers xxxxx
Merchants Reward Trip
Our Merchants trip yesterday was a great success. 73 children and 12 staff attended: all children got involved in basketball, dodgeball, parachute games and team races. A very well done to all children whose behaviour and teamwork skills were praised by the sports coaches. There were happy faces all around.
Let's raise the bar again for the summer term trip!!!!!
