I just want to give a short revisit to the “Every Day Counts” Yes Message I talked about a few weeks ago. As you know, one of the challenges in The Cecil Challenge is that the children attend school regularly. The target for that challenge is no more than 5 unexplained &/or unacceptable (e.g. taking holidays during the school term) absences within a term. I would like to congratulate you all on your success in meeting that challenge this term. We have only 6 children with unexplained or unacceptable absences and of those children, only one who will miss out on the end of term reward due to their absences. The children to get the highest honours with NO unexplained &/or unacceptable absences are the secondary children. Well done guys!
What can you do to help at home? Firstly congratulate yourselves on keeping us informed of your children’s absences. Secondly and simply, keep letting us know about your children’s absences by whatever means you have been using.
