Attendance at the Queensmead Primary Academy
In June 2014, Ofsted said that attendance at the Academy is above average andreflects pupils' enjoyment of their time at the Academy. This is helped by the positive ethos in the Academy, pupils behaving well, attending regularly and having good manners.
The importance of attendance is high profile in our Academy – through displays in the entrance, high profile in newsletters and weekly scores posted on all classroom doors. A comprehensive Attendance policy and letters to parents, that all adults are acutely aware of, drive a focus on raising attendance across the Academy. Persistent absentees are consistently being challenged with support of the active Education Welfare Officer (EWO) and are decreasing.
Attendance Awards are given weekly to the highest class attendance and most improved class attendance. Half termly 100% certificates are presented to those children who sustain this. Yearly 100% prizes are presented to children. Healthy competition is encouraged.
