Attendance in school is very important. The attendance expectation is 97% and all pupils are monitored closely to ensure their attendance is not dropping below this level.
Action will be taken from school if this seems to be the case. Any pupil's attendance that falls below would be deemed unacceptable and school, along with our education welfare worker, would intervene. Please be aware that holidays taken during term time will NOT be authorised and this will in turn affect your child's attendance levels.
To promote attendance in all classes we have our school mascot 'Dougie' the attendance dog who spends the week visiting the class with the highest attendance. Children, who achieve 100% attendance each term, are rewarded with an attendance star. A bronze star for the first term, followed by a silver for the second consecutive term of 100% and a gold star for the third term.
