At Ranikhet Academy we take attendance very seriously. We expect our all pupils to be in school every day and on time, ready to explore the curriculum with their fabulous teachers. This will enable them to be their best version, which is what we want for all our pupils. Each week, Mr Thomas and Mr Wye analyse the week’s figures and each class has the opportunity to earn points that add up to bigger rewards throughout the year!
Every phase group has their own ‘attendance results’ board that is updated every Friday by Mr Thomas. That way, the children can see which class is doing brilliantly with their attendance and which classes have areas to improve on.
The points that each class can earn vary, depending on their overall class attendance for that week. If a class achieves 96%, they receive 1 point. If the average attendance is 97%, it's 2 points. 98%, 99% and 100% receive 3, 4 or 5 points respectively. These are then tallied up every half term, the winning class is rewarded with a very special event pr trip somewhere!
We are really proud that our children enjoy coming to school and therefore, have great attendance. If you ever have any questions about your child’s attendance or how the school monitors this, please speak to your child’s class teacher or to Mr Thomas.
