Encouraging good attendance

At St Joseph's, we understand the impact good attendance and punctuality has on our children’s learning and we believe in rewarding good attendance and punctuality to engage and motivate our children.
We have many initiatives to support and celebrate attendance and punctuality so that it remains a high profile in school and with our families.

Some of the ways in which we promote and celebrate good attendance and punctuality:

  • Celebration assembly weekly to award the class with the best attendance a trophy and certificate.


  • All classroom doors have an Attendance poster - ‘the Scores on the Doors’  is updated weekly by our Head Boy and Head Girl to show the class’ attendance.
  • At the end of the year, every child who has achieved 100% attendance is awarded a 100% certificate. 
  • Individual Class attendance is shared on the half termly school newsletter.
