Being in school every day is a target we have for every child. We believe that regular attendance is an important part of giving your child the best start in life. Our children are learning everyday and missing school can lead to a child falling behind in their learning. We encourage parents to bring their children in to school if they are feeling 'under the weather'. We will keep a close eye on your child and our office staff are happy to administer medicine in accordance with our school Managing Medicines Policy. Improving attendance and 100% attendance is celebrated and rewarded at Micklem Primary School. Our 100% children from 2016 17 enjoyed a reward trip to the cinema in appreciation of their efforts to be in school every day. We celebrate attendance weekly and we recognise the efforts the children are making to be in school every day.
