At Bay Primary School we recognise the importance that good attendance and punctuality have in ensuring that children are able to make good academic progress, have good mental well-being, health and happiness. We want every child to strive towards excellent attendance and work hard with pupils, parents and carers to make individual attendance as good as it can be.
This year, as an incentive for pupils to maintain good attendance, all the children who achieve 97% attendance or above will be put in a draw and four pupils randomly selected to win a £10.00 voucher each to spend in Argos!
Attendance is monitored daily by the Attendance Administration Officer who acts swiftly when attendance becomes a concern.
