Wow what a half term! It has been incredibly busy but very productive! I am proud to say that we have a school full of amazing students who have really grown to show the traits we expect across the school and our school vision is really visible in the actions and choices of the children.
Over the last 8 weeks we have explored
through school learning about different time periods and events as well as comparing how times have changed.
This half term has also been busy for parents and it’s been great to see so many of you attending the events we have put on for you. Attendance at parents evening was fantastic with 93% of you attending appointments to find out about how your children are doing in school.
Attendance is the best we have ever seen at WCPS however we are still below target.
School attendance since September is
Although some classes are still well below this!
Last year at this point our attendance was 94.8% but we need to do more to get it up to our target.
To promote positive attendance we are launching November as attendance awareness month.
