Attendance w/c 14th September

Wednesday, 23 September 2015

•Reception 99%
•Year 1 99.6%
•Year 2 93%
•Year 3 93%
•Year 4 98%
•Year 5 96%
•Year 6 96%

Average overall attendance was 96%.

Good attendance achieved this week!

A reminder that leave of absence can only be granted under exceptional circumstances. The Government are quite clear on the importance of children’s full attendance in school and Headteachers’ responsibilities in ensuring maximum attendance.

Leave of absence is judged on individual merit and circumstances judged in line with other schools in the area to ensure a consistent approach is achieved by all local schools.


Monday, 14 September 2015

Again attendance has come under the spotlight in the press. It is very difficult for Headteachers to grant any leave of absence unless the circumstances are exceptional. The Government directive is very clear about children not attending school.

As an area, the Bedworth Primary Schools regularly discuss attendance and work together to improve outcomes for all children. The new regulations have been in place for a year now and at our meetings we will be discussing the issue of fines.

We will be updating our attendance policy over the next month and parents will be notified when this is available on the school website.

If any parents have concerns or questions please call in to discuss them with Mrs Browne.

The Bug Hotel

Monday, 14 September 2015

It looks like we’ve had lots of visitors to the bug hotel over the summer. Year 2 enjoyed sowing wild flower seeds and planting flowers to try and attract lots of wildlife and it’s looking great.

First Day Back

Monday, 7 September 2015

All the children seemed happy to be back in school, during the breaks they were busy swapping details of holiday experiences and luckily able to enjoy a glimmer of warm sunshine, something that’s been missing for much of the summer break.

A big welcome to our new pupils who start today and tomorrow, we all hope they will enjoy being at Wheelwright Lane. All our classes are now full.

Everyone is settling in to their new class/routines and getting to know their new teachers. We hope for a busy and productive term ahead.

Shakespeare Rocks

Monday, 7 September 2015

The children in year 6 performed their end of year play, Shakespeare Rocks, to an appreciative audience in school on Tuesday morning and an appreciative audience of friends and family on Wednesday evening. We are very proud of the commitment shown to produce such an engaging and professional performance – every pupil gave 100% effort and had their chance to shine in the spotlight.
The friends and family who were treated to this fabulous show stayed long afterwards to share tea, cake and memories with staff and children.
