Attendance and Punctuality
Good attendance and punctuality are hugely important to how well children do at school and how they develop strong friendships. At Goat Lees, we expect the children to be on time for school and have very little time off.
We work very closely with the local authority to follow up problems if they occur, and we do a lot to reward and promote good attitudes in our children. We have welcomed, Attendance Ted and Punctuality Pup into school.
Each week, 'Gertie Goat' is rewarded to the class with the best attendance.
At the end of the year, the children receive a special certificate and prize for 100% attendance. However, we do understand that occasionally everyone becomes ill, so we also have the '98% club' to reward those with good attendance.
The attendance level for 2013-2014 was 96%.
The attendance level for 2014-2015 was 96.6%.
The attendance level for 2015-2016 was 95.6%.
The attendance level for 2016-2017 was 96.1%.
