Happy new year to you all – I hope the Christmas break was a happy and healthy one for you. Now that we’ve had one full term in school, this week’s message is a look at attendance for the full Autumn term and information about a parent governor vacancy…
Up to 09 December across England, the attendance rate was 92.7% for all schools and 94.0% for primary schools (this is based on data for schools reporting their attendance figures to the Department for Education).
Up to 16 December, our whole school attendance figure is 91.7% – this is quite a lot below the national figures.
Here’s the attendance figure for each year group…
- Reception class: 91.5%
- Year 1: 93.3% – well done!
- Year 2: 92.4%
- Year 3: 92.6%
- Year 4: 87.9%
- Year 5: 91.0%
- Year 6: 92.7%
The more your child is at school, the more they learn and play – please make sure your child is attending school as much as possible. Check out this NHS advice about when your child should and should not attend school.
We recently wrote to all parents and carers regarding a parent governor vacancy, and to seek nominations. As the number of nominations received exceeded the number of parent governor vacancies, it’s now necessary to hold a ballot.
We sent an email out this morning giving details about the voting process. Every parent of a registered pupil at school is eligible to vote.
To vote, use the following link: https://forms.gle/
The ballot closes at 12 noon on 13 January 2023. The result of the election will be confirmed on the school websites.
Have a good weekend.
