At Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School, excellent attendance is one of our top priorities. We are keen to encourage all pupils to take advantage of every teaching and learning opportunity available to them at the school and in order for that to happen it is important they are here.
To continue to promote and reward outstanding attendance, we are running a festive attendance incentive. Between the 6th and 21st of December, we would like every pupil to be present at school and pupils will have the chance to win some fantastic prizes if they are. The daily winners will be drawn at random from all the pupils in attendance that day with a prize per year group. Please note, to be eligible for the grand prize on the 21st of December, pupils must have attended all week. As you know, your child should be in school every day, but every effort should be made to ensure 100% attendance during these 12 days.
If you have made medical or dental appointments during this period, we kindly ask that you make every effort to rearrange these if possible. If not, please ensure that your child only misses the minimum amount of time and not a whole morning or afternoon.
Our current attendance is 92% and we have further incentives and rewards planned for the remainder of the academic year. We appreciate your continuing support in helping your child achieve excellent attendance.
