Actions from last year:

  • Reduce lateness within registration window: ensure consistent recording, implement targets with families. It is now possible to record number of minutes late, and this can be used to formulate targets for persistent lateness.

Actions for this year:

  • Reducing lateness: On time targets & weekly on time stickers
  • Close gap for disadvantaged children’s attendance: monitor and set targets. What is needed to improve the situation for this family?
  • Share school’s attendance goals and averages with families.
