Attendance matters! You can see from the chart on this page how much of a difference it can make to a child's education when their school attendance is good.
To encourage and reward those pupils in our school whose attendance is good we will now be holding a regular raffle. Any pupils who have achieved 96% or higher attendance and who have not arrived at school late on more than 3 occasions since the start of term will receive a raffle ticket which will be entered into a half-termly draw, with a wide range of prizes available (prizes will include cinema tickets, Tranmere Rovers match day tickets, Smyth’s Toyshop vouchers, Afternoon Tea at the Leverhulme Hotel, Chester Zoo family tickets, family tickets for Ness Gardens and boxes of chocolates!)
In addition, all children who have achieved 100% attendance will also receive a raffle ticket to be entered into our big Spring and Summer Draws. We are delighted to announce that K Cycles of Eastham have generously donated two bicycles as grand prizes for these Draws - many thanks to them for their sponsorship, these are prizes well worth winning!
We hope that the chance to win these fabulous prizes will be an extra incentive to aim for regular attendance and good punctuality. And, of course, by coming to school on time every day you are giving yourself the best possible chance to learn and make good progress.
