The aim at Copperfield is to have every child achieve 100% attendance throughout the year. However, the national average for any primary pupil is about 96%, because we understand that children do miss school due to sickness and/or the occasional appointment.

In school we encourage everyone to do their very best and come to school every day and on time.

  • We have displays about the importance of attendance around the school
  • We celebrate each class’ attendance with a certificate on each classroom door
  • We tell you about your child’s attendance during parents evening
  • Attendance is spoken about during assemblies
  • The class with the best attendance each term receives the trophy
  • Pupils with 100% attendance each term will receive a reward
  • At the end of the year, those pupils with 100% attendance and most improved attendance will take part in a mystery celebration
