Attendance and Punctuality

At Lapal we strongly believe that attendance and punctuality are vital for a child to maximise their potential and create a feeling of belonging in their class/school community. We have a culture of celebrating all kinds of achievement, attendance is included in this.

We promote good attendance and punctuality in the following ways;

  • Each week attendance and punctuality is celebrated in Whole School Assembly.  The class who achieve the best attendance is given 5 minutes extra playtime the following week.

  • Best class attendance is published in monthly newsletters

  • Each term we celebrate attendance as a whole school.  Children who have achieved 100% attendance for the current term will receive a certificate.

  • Attendance figures are reported to parents termly and at the end of the academic year via the child’s report.

  • We have clear communication with pupils and parents about the importance of punctuality and good attendance.

  • We work in partnership with the Education Investigation Service (EIS) to communicate to parents their legal obligations and the consequences of condoned absence.

Our overall attendance for the academic year 2022-2023 was 96%
