Be an attendance superstar at The Oval!


Give your children the best chance of achieving well and progressing with high academic results through their school years, by attending school every day.


A big well done to all the children who had fantastic attendance during the spring term and attended the fun……GOLDEN TICKET DAY  


Did you know that the government expect children to have a minimum of 97% attendance during each school year?


 A few reminders-please ring the school to report your childs reason for absence.


Medication (prescribed)- class teachers can administer these at school if necessary rather than your child stay off school and lose time.


Sickness-as soon as your child has stopped being sick they can return to school.


Diarrhoea Or sickness/diarrhoea-pupils should be kept at home for 48 hours after the last bout before returning to school.


Temperature/cough/colds-please use your parental judgement and send your child if they are well enough to attend school. Inform their teacher and if they deteriorate during the day we will contact you and send them home.


It is inevitable that children may lose time at school occasionally, but we just ask you to be conscious of the importance of your Childs education and attendance.



If your Childs attendance is 97 % or above they will be participating in this exiting event. At the end every term we have a day full of surprises and treats for the children. The event is kept top secret so the children really look forward to the day.


So lets see if your child will be attending the next golden ticket day at the end of this summer term.


Together we are achieving success
