As a school, we are committed to promoting good attendance, recognising that this is central to raising children’s attainment.

Every week at Burton Green, we hold a Good Work assembly where we announce the class or classes whose attendance was the highest for the previous week.

The winning class is presented with a trophy and the top three classes are placed on the attendance display on bronze, silver or gold.

Reward time

Classes who have achieved above 96% attendance receive ten minutes reward time. The children have chosen these rewards and they include: Truffle time (our school rabbit), a playground game, singing, drawing or ten minutes on chrome books.

Celebrating individual attendance

We also celebrate individual attendance in our weekly assembly. This is based on attendance for that week, so is achievable for everyone.

A child in each class receives an attendance certificate.

Postcards home

At the end of every half term, every child in school who has above 96% attendance recieves a postcard from our Head Teacher. This is to congratulate them and celebrate their achievement.
