The Weald (CofE) Primary School

Attendance and Absence

Picture 1 Each week a class wins the Attendance Cup

Mrs Rachel Jacob, Headteacher has overall responsibility for the leadership and management of school attendance. Ms Penny Alder, Pupil Records Assistant, takes on day-to-day responsibility for the management of attendance registers and first day calling of pupils absent from school. Mrs Jacob and Ms Alder regularly meet with Mrs Amy Cooper, our attached Education Welfare Office (Surrey County Council) to ensure the highest levels of attendance of all pupils. Where concerns arise staff will ensure opportunities for support from our multi-professional team. The school is proud of its attendance figures which currently stand above the National Average. To ensure continuing high levels the school has a range of attendance initiatives which include a weekly class attendance cup, individual awards and trophies for the most-improved attenders.
