Craig Champion is the nominated governor for attendance.

Actions from last year:

  • Reduce lateness within registration window: ensure consistent recording, implement targets with families – success of this is unclear because of changes to MIS. 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?
  • From Attendance Officer’s report: update policy and publish on website
  • Share school’s attendance goals and averages with families
