Be The Best You Can Be

At Norbridge Academy we promote and encourage children to 'Be The Best You Can Be' - this includes their attendance to school.

Parents are kept up to date each half term with their children's attendance in the pupil planners. 

Below is information to help explain attendance percentage levels;


  •  95% and over (excellent attendance)


  •  90-95% (satisfactory attendance)


  • below 90% (poor attendance, needs action)


As well as keeping parents up to date with their individual children's attendance, we also communicate via classroom windows, the whole class weekly attendance. Children of the best class win a certificate and a trophy!


Children with 100% attendance are praised each term with a movie night or attendance disco.

At the end of the year children receiving annual 100% attendance are invited to a special Attendance Assembly, where they each receive a WH Smith voucher, trophy, certificate and a chance to win either a bike or an iPod!

Other awards are presented at the assembly, including improved attendance and attendance of 99%.


Parents can support with raising the profile of attendance by:

  • keeping absences to a minimum
  • only keeping children off school for major illness/injury
  • arranging medical/dental appointments outside school hours


Thank you. frown
