At Beechwood, attendance plays an important role for all of our pupils and staff. We aim for all pupils to achieve at least 96% attendance each week.

 See the table below for our comparison over the last 3 years.

Attendance Comparison




Target For


% Attendance





Throughout the year pupils can achieve different rewards for good attendance.


Here are some of the ways school rewards this:

ATTENDANCE - Every week, during the key stage assemblies, each class finds out what their whole class attendance figure is.  If any classes at the end of a week achieve 100%, the class receive a whole class reward to enjoy together.

Pupils who manage 98% or above attendance each term will be invited to a celebration party at the start of the next term to, which we know as a school is very hard to achieve. Their parents will also receive a special recognition letter.


Attendance Thermometer

At the front of school there is an attendance thermometer.  Each class has their attendance shown on the thermometer. This is updated weekly.

If you have any questions or concerns linked to your child's attendance, please contact Miss Hart or Mrs Major who will be willing to give advice, help and support.

As a school we would like to thank all of our parents and carers for their continued support with ensuring their children attend school each and every day.


Children across the school from reception to year 6 enjoyed an attendance party on Wednesday 5th January 2022 to celebrate their superb attendance during the autumn term as being 98% or above.

Two special guests also made an appearance - The Attendance Bears - who presented each child with a certificate and some sweets. Well done to everyone who continue to have excellent attendance and parents for bringing their children to school daily despite the challenges of COVID.
