Miss Evans and all the Highfield staff would like to say a massive thank you to Mr Donald Bates and his partner for taking the time to share his mother's attendance medals with us which she received when she attended Highfield school from 1901 to 1908.
It was wonderful to see what kind of incentives they had for attendance over a hundred years ago! She certainly must have been proud of them to keep them in such wonderful condition for such a long time. Let's hope our children who attend now will be just as proud.
Prince Albert Community Trust are working in partnership with parents to improve school attendance. We would like to congratulate the many parents who make sure their children attend school regularly.
Our aim is to give your children the best start possible in life and therefore, regular school attendance is necessary for us to provide this.
As you may be aware, it is a legal requirement for all children of compulsory school age to attend school on a regular basis. Research has shown that children’s academic and social progress may be affected if children do not attend school regularly.
Attached is a letter produced by the local authority outlining the Spotlight and Leave in Term Time Campaigns that we are adopting at Highfield J.I. School starting 26th September 2016. Please take time to read this very important information so you are up to date with our new attendance and leave in term time procedures.
We look forward to working with you to improve your children’s futures.
Mr S. Gulzar (CEO)
Executive Head Teacher
