To support our families in improving attendance we have Mrs. Martindale as our Attendance Officer. Her role is to track attendance across the school and identify opportunities to support families. We have many ways that we can do this including offering a breakfast club place and pastoral support. An important part of our Attendance Officer’s role is to keep families up to date with children’s attendance and punctuality as this can impact on children’s learning.
Why attendance is so important.
We ensure children understand how good attendance can impact on their lives now and in the future. We speak to the children regularly about attendance and how it can affect their learning. We have many visitors and special days to recognise the importance of attendance and ensure all learning has Golden Opportunities.
Why attend Gwladys
At Gwladys Street, we pride ourselves on an engaging and exciting curriculum enhanced by visitors and visits. We offer many after school clubs and themed days and are proud of our new improved outdoor areas. Good attendance supports children’s wellbeing and development and they are taught healthy coping and resilient strategies to understand their own emotions and those of others. School has an excellent team of Mental Health experts and a nurture base – Calm Central – to support a holistic approach to the child’s wellbeing as well as signposting to other agencies for the whole family.
