Attendance and Punctuality
School is too good to miss!
At Christ Church we believe that for children to achieve their full potential, they need to attend school regularly and punctually; we are committed to working in partnership with our families to ensure this happens.
We asked a few children why they thought good attendance is so important, this is what they said:
“I get to see my friends. I would miss them if I wasn’t in school everyday”
“I love learning new things”
“I’m so glad my attendance has improved. I feel the same as the other children in my class. I’m proud of myself”
What good attendance looks like…
We would like to see all our pupils with an attendance rate as close to 100% as possible, but understand that at times children are unwell and absences are inevitable. The expectation across Wirral is for each child to maintain a minimum of at least 96% and at Christ Church we strive to support families to achieve this.
Celebrating Good Attendance
We reward classes weekly for good attendance in celebration assembly each Friday and the class with the highest percentage gets a special treat. At the end of each term, those children with 96% upwards are awarded a certificate in a special assembly.
