Attendance at Ocker Hill Infant and Nursery School is very important and we celebrate it in a number of ways.
We award the Attendance bear weekly to the class and/or classes with the best attendance for that week. The children enjoy and take great pride in winning these bears. Every half term attendance certificates are awarded to the children with 100% Gold award; 99% Silver award and 98% Bronze award. 100% attenders get a small prize to celebrate this awesome achievement.
Each year we have an attendance week where the childrenare able to take part in an exciting activity set up; a bouncy castle and also had an ice cream. Also each child with 100% that week, had their names put into a hat and 2 were chosen from each year group to win a board game.
Each week a class is awarded the Class Attendance Bear for the best attendance..........
