Attendance and Punctuality

At Boarshaw Primary School we take attendance and punctuality very seriously. We understand the importance of our pupils being in school each and every day and most importantly on time. Certificates and prizes are offered to pupils who have good attendance in school and our Deputy Head, Abigail Facchin is happy to provide support to families who need it.  

At present we have an attendance display in the hall. Each week during our celebration assembly classes with over 95% attendance gain a star to put on their class. At the end of each term, the class with the most stars wins a special treat! Our pupils enjoy the competitive elements of this competition. In addition one class from each key stage wins the attendance teddy to keep in their class!
