At Meopham Community Academy we recognise that attending school regularly and on time has a positive impact on learning and progress leading to the best life chances for our pupils. Excellent attendance and punctuality is the key for our pupils' success. In line with the Government Guidelines, we expect all our students to maintain an attendance level of 95% and above.
At our school, we have introduced Attendance Ted and Punctuality Pup to be awarded to classes with the highest attendance and fewest late marks each week. There will be a Gold, Silver and Bronze award for the top three classes. When classes achieve 100% attendance over the course of a week, they will receive a whole class reward of a non-uniform day on the Friday the following week. By introducing this award, we want to recognise those children who achieve 100% over the course of a term.
