Attendance

Star Trophies 
 
Every half term Kingston Park along with the 7 other schools in our Trust (Stocksfield Avenue, Kenton Bar, Mountfield, Farne, Cheviot, Wyndham and North Fawdon) compete to be awarded a Star Trophy. The Star Trophies are awarded to each year group from Reception up to Year 6 for the school that has the best overall attendance across all the Trust schools. The aim of the Star Trophies is to promote good attendance within school and encourage children to strive to attend school daily. The Star Trophies were kindly donated by Ian Clennell, from Clennell Education Solutions.

Famous Faces
At the beginning of the new half term, all Trust schools have their own assembly focusing on attendance and announce the winners of the Star Trophies using the same presentation. Each term in the presentation a famous or well known person provides a video of themselves talking about how important attendance is and links good attendance to their current job. 
 
We have previous had athletes, authors and politicians. Have a look below at their videos. 
 
If anyone knows any famous or well known individual or group and would be able to get a short video of them talking about attendance please contact us! 

Postcards
 
Each half term attendance postcards will be sent home showing your child's attendance for the entire half term. There are 5 different postcards your child can receive:
 
Gold
 
The gold postcard is for children who have achieved 100% attendance for the half term. This means that your child was in school every day!
 
Green
 
The green postcard is for children who had attendance of 96% or above for the half term. This means your child only missed a couple of days at school or even just a morning or afternoon. 
 
Amber
 
The amber postcard is for children who had attendance of between 91% and 95% attendance. This means your children missed several days of school during the half term.
 
Red
 
The red postcard is for children who had attendance of below 90%. This means your child missed a significant amount of days from school and have missed out on crucial learning.
 
Blue
 
The blue postcard is for children who have missed numerous days of school due to a medical condition or for children with Special Educational Needs who can't regularly attend school. The blue postcard encourages children to keep trying their best to attend school wherever possible.

Weekly Attendance Certificates 

Each week the class with the highest attendance for the preceding week will receive a certificate which will be displayed in the class area. These will be awarded in assembly every two weeks. Attendance assemblies are also held regularly throughout the half term to update children on how their attendance is.
