Ofsted, March 2024: “This is a school where pupils learn to be themselves, to respect difference and to speak out when they see injustice….Pupils respond to the school’s high expectations for their academic outcomes….Pupils’ excellent behaviour means that staff can focus on the joy of teaching.” Ofsted, March 2024.

Attendance

Good attendance is the single most important factor in achieving good results.  Good attendance ensures children are not missing out - not just learning, but the important social aspects of school life, too. 

 

AT ST LUKE'S, WE AIM FOR ALL PUPILS TO HAVE 100% ATTENDANCE.  IF PARENTS ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY GETTING THEIR CHILDREN INTO SCHOOL, FOR WHATEVER REASON, WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO CONTACT MRS DWAN, OUR PARENT SUPPORT ADVISER, FOR HELP AND ADVICE.

Above 99%: Less than 2 days absence a year

Excellent attendance!  These young people will almost certainly get the best grades they can, leading to better prospects for the future.  Pupils will also get into a habit of attending school which will continue into the workplace.

Above 97%: Less than 6 days absence a year

Good attendance!  These young people will remain on track to attain the best grades for their ability and will develop good habits of attendance which will stand them in good stead in later life.

95%: 10 days absence a year

These pupils are missing vital learning and will be less likely to achieve good grades and form a habit of attending school regularly. 

90%: 19 days absence a year

Young people in this group are missing a month of school per year; it will be difficult for them to achieve their best as it will be almost impossible to keep up with learning.

The Government classes Young People in this group as “Persistent Absentees”. Parents of young people in this group could also face the possibility of legal action being taken by the Local Authority.

 

We have a variety of awards systems in place to encourage good attendance in school:

This is Luke. He is our class weekly attendance Super Hero Bear. Each week whichever class has the highest percentage attendance wins a HERO cape ticket for their class chart. At the end of the year, the class with the most HERO tickets and the class with the highest overall attendance (this could be the same class, but could also be a differnet class, whose attendance has been consistently high) will be able to choose a whole class reward.

Each week we have a prize draw for every child in school who has achieved 100% attendance that week. There are two names picked out, one in each Celebration Worship on a Friday afternoon. The lucky winners get to choose a prize from the 100% attendance box which is filled full of fun and colourful stationery.

 

At the end of each half-term, four names are drawn from a hat who have achieved 100% attendance that half-term, and these pupils are awarded with a certificate and a £5 Amazon gift card.

At the end of the year, each child who has managed to gain 100% attendance for the whole of the academic year is invited to celebrate at a tea party with Mrs Cowey. They are awarded with a certificate, a present and share some tasty treats.

to learn, to succeed, to value one another

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. A value is a belief or principle that guides our thinking and behaviour. Our values underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils to be happy and confident and to to take an active role in their community and the wider world.

Each year group has adopted one of our Christian values: Kindness, Forgiveness, Courage, Thankfulness, Hope, Faithfulness and Respect. Our over-arching Christian Value is Love. Throughout the year children are helped to explore, have opportunities to practise and then given time to reflect on what each of our Christian values means to them.
