At Uphall Primary School we believe it is important to reward good attendance and recognise how motivational this can be for our children.
We have recently introduced Year Group Mascots and/or Trophies to encourage good attendance.
All classes are rewarded with an extra 10 minutes of playtime when their class wins the attendance mascot/trophy.
We also reward the classes who have more than 97% weekly attendance. Each class has a “Perfect Attendance” poster that they can colour in a letter when they attend 97% or more. When all the letters are coloured in they also earn an extra 10 minute playtime.
Each week individual children who have 100% weekly attendance are rewarded with a special gold sticker that they wear with pride.
Each term children who have 100% attendance for the term are rewarded with a medal. In the Autumn term this is Bronze, in Spring it is Silver and in the Summer the medal is Gold.
The class with the best attendance in each year group for the term can chose from a menu of rewards to celebrate their excellent attendance.
At the end of the year the class with the best attendance in EYFS, in KS1 and in KS2 is rewarded with a special prize. The children can chose from a menu of school trips or events such as a theatre visit, bowling or a trip to the zoo!
