Attendance at Bramley Park Academy

At the end of each term, 100% attendees will receive a gold certificate in the school celebration assembly, and they will also be eligible for a prize draw for a £20.00 gift voucher.

Pupils achieving 98% to 99.9% attendance will also receive a silver certificate in class, and will have eligibility to win a £10.00 gift voucher in the prize draw.

With 96% to 97.9% attendees, they will receive a bronze certificate in class, have the eligibility to win a £5.00 gift voucher in the prize draw.

We celebrate attendance every Monday morning in a special assembly, where the class with the best attendance in KS1 and KS2 win the Pokemon class mascot for the week. Every class which has an average attendance of 96% or more, can also play the Classopoly Board.

 

Classopoly

Classopoly is our monopoly style board game – you will spot it on the wall in our hall. Each class had their own monopoly piece which move around the board every week you have 96% or more attendance. Your class gets to roll the dice to move around the board.

There is one special difference about our board though – instead of house, the squares are all rewards; everything from an extra playtimes, art activities, to lemonade, crispy buns or a special lesson with Mr Clay!

3 P’s for Attendance at Bramley Park Academy

  • PREVENTION

You can prevent your child by missing school by making sure they understand the importance of good attendance and punctuality.

Take an interest in their education – ask them about school work, and encourage them to get involved in any school activities.

Discuss any problems they may have at school, and inform their teacher or a member of the Pastoral Team about anything serious.

Do not let them take time off school for minor ailments.

  • PUNCTUALITYEnsure your child arrives to school on time – 8:45AM.
    Being continually late can have a detrimental effect on your child’s education.
Minutes late each day Number of days of education lost over a year
5 minutes 3.4 days
10 minutes 6.9 days
15 minutes 10.3 days
20 minutes 13.8 days
30 minutes 20.7 days
  • PROMOTION

Promote an education to your child; let them know that they have to make the most of the educational opportunities available to them.

Irregular school attendance seriously disrupts continuity of learning, undermines progress and leads to underachievement and low attainment.

Give your child the education they are entitles to and deserve – we want them to succeed just as much as you!
