#teamcarrmill Attendance Rewards
At school we work tirelessly to improve attendance and develop both pupils and parent understanding as to why attending school is important.
Spend or Save Attendance Challenge
Have you heard about our exciting weekly attendance challenge? Each week our children work hard to be the class with the best attendance in EYFS & KS1 or KS2 – which earns them (if they achieve above 96%) £10! Classes can they choose to spend or save their winnings! Celebrating attendance in this way allows for a competitive approach to be utilised but ensures that individuals are not penalised in public for their absences. An example of this is that if a child is absent due to Covid or a long-term medical condition, they are not included in their class percentage.
We like to keep things exciting so occasionally offer out an attendance spot prize. Olisa in Class 7 earned his class an additional £5 for their class bank when he was chosen as ‘secret student’ and completed the challenge of maintaining 100% attendance across the week.
10 Day Challenge
We often challenge our children to successfully maintain 100% attendance during a 10 days challenge. Children who complete this challenge go into a draw to win a special class prize.
Before October half, an incredible 204 children achieved a perfect score, resulting in a significant improvement to our weekly attendance percentage.
