What you can do to help at home...
Talk to your child each Day about:
- What they have learnt in school.
- Friendships have they made and who they have played with.
- What new skills/knowledge they have learnt and how can they apply this.
- How are they feeling and why.
- Why it is important to come to school.
- Their aspirations and opportunities available to them.
Our school day start and finish times are a little different in September so please ensure you are familiar with the these to avoid waiting on the playground or arriving late. Members of staff will be available everyday to assist you.
Top Tips to get to school on time everyday...
- Make sure your child knows why school is important, even if you had a bad experience as a child at school.
- Show your child that you are interested in what they have learnt or are learning.
- Get everything you need ready the night before
- Set your alarm; see who can beat the clock
- Join Breakfast club
- Set off a little earlier
- Connect with your child’s teachers.
- If there is problem, please speak to Miss Jones asap to ensure this is sorted immediately; this will prevent absence spiralling out of control.
INCENTIVE 1: FLYING START
Let's start as we mean to go on... During the first 3 days back in September 1 child from each class will win a daily prize. Plus on Monday 7th (via Zoom assembly), one lucky parent whose child has attended all three days will be chosen to win a £50 Asda gift card.
INCENTIVE 2: CASH FOR CLASS
The Cash for Class incentive will run from September for the academic year. Pupils will need to work as a class team to win cash for their class. Each class will receive cash prizes dependent on their overall weekly class attendance:
97%+ = £5
95%+ = £3
94% = £2
Classes will have a class cash jar and will choose how and when they would like to spend their money. Pupils may decide to spend their money every half term/term or they may decide to save their cash and spend it at the end of the year. Pupils can choose from treats such as ice-creams, popcorn, movie days, trips, discos etc...
Make sure you are here every day to help your class build up their Cash!
