Three Lane Ends Academy
Regular attendance in school is crucial for your child so that they do not miss out on valuable teaching and learning. In the event of needing to report your child’s absence from school we ask you to help us by:
See below for your child’s potential attendance based on the number of days missed.
Attendance is an area of school improvement we have been working on for a number of years and we are continuing to drive this up. We have a number of incentives to encourage children to come into school, including termly awards and recognition, weekly reminders in assembly with a reward for the class with the highest %.
Last year we implemented a new reward system (based on the idea of trivial pursuit) whereby each class need to strive to achieve 96% of more each half term. In the terms the class achieves this, they are awarded with a ‘cheese’ and choose a low-cost reward. This is displayed in the hall so that this can be celebrated by all.
Please see below for the colours of each ‘cheese’ and the category they represent.
Pink – creative arts
Green – Science and nature
Blue – Computing and engineering
Yellow – Expressive arts
Brown – culture
Orange – Sport
At the beginning of each term, each teacher needs to discuss with their class which category they would like to work towards. The aim is to have 6 ‘cheeses’ by the end of the academic year.
