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 children are 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..........
We continue to raise the importance of attendance and encouraging the ethos of how importanrt attendance is - this also links with the school ethos of the love of learning gives you wings. It is important to be in school to take part in the creative curriculum that school has to offer - internally the is a vast variety of opportunities to source and develop.
This academic year we continue to pride ourselves in increasing attendance levels as the children report back to school and have an exciting new start
'You have to come to school because learning is fun' Year 1
'I love it here because we are mindful' Year 2
'I like to explore in school' Reception
'I love my teacher - she is fun' Nursery.
Keeping Parents and Carers Informed
We will send parents/carers an email each week detailing the attendance percentages for each class and celebrating the class with the highest attendance that week.
Parents/Carers are provided with an individual attendance summary for their child each half-term.
If we are concerned about your child's attendance we will contact you directly.
If you feel you need help from school or have any questions regarding attendance please contact us either by phone or email and we will support you wherever possible. You can also contact Mrs. D. Thompson, our Attendance Officer on 07792 422508.
We strive for excellent attendance and one of the most important factors in helping us to achieve this is a strong partnership between parents/carers and school. Please help us to achieve our attendance aim of a minimum of 96%.
