Going to school regularly is important to your child’s future. Children who miss school frequently can fall behind with their work and do less well in exams.

Policy on Attendance

Attend to Achieve Awards

To reward children who attend school regularly we have weekly, half-termly, termly and annual awards.

Weekly Class Competition

Every week, classes have a chance to win a class Attendance Award. They can exchange these for treats (voted on by the School Council) in the Carr Hill Attendance café.

Half-Termly Award

Each half term, pupils who have achieved 100% attendance get to choose from a range of vouchers.


Termly Award

Certificates are presented each term for pupils who have achieved 100% attendance.

Annual Award

All children with 100% for the whole year are taken on an all expenses paid school trip at the end of the year to celebrate their fantastic achievement and presented with a Carr Hill gift pen and certificate as a memento.
