Attendance Team Roles And Responsibilities

Our Vision

Kingsmoor Academy recognises that positive behaviour and good attendance are central to raising standards of pupil attainment.

At Kingsmoor Academy, we aim to provide the very best education and support for all of our pupils and staff in order to ensure that every child leaves our academy with everything they need to reach their full potential. We promise to do everything we can to give our children the very best education that gives them the best opportunity to succeed in life.

We recognise the clear link between attendance and the attainment of pupils. We encourage the highest possible levels of attendance for individuals, groups and the pupil body as a whole. To achieve this, all members of our academy community have an important contribution to make.

Attendance Rewards

In order to promote good attendance, we provide rewards to those children who have achieved good attendance which include:

The class with the best attendance gets a reward every half term to celebrate their success – this has been in the form of movie afternoons, additional reward time, extra playtime or anything which the children suggest which is manageable within school time.

Attendance rewards in the form of certificates and small prizes presented in assembly.

End of year attendance reward activity for pupils with outstanding attendance.

House credits are also awarded for improved attendance or improved punctuality.


If your child is unable to attend school, you must contact the school office on the first day of absence and provide a reason for your child’s absence before 9.00am.

All pupil’s attendance is monitored by school staff and the academy Attendance Officer.

The Attendance Officer and the Attendance Lead meet weekly to monitor pupils whose attendance is below 90%.

Pupils whose attendance is below 90% will be monitored closely and parents/carers will be informed. They will then have a chance to discuss this with the academy Attendance Officer.

Legal action may be taken by the Local Authority if attendance does not improve sufficiently.


It is very important that your child arrives to school on time. School gates open at 8.30am and remain open until 8.50am. We have a soft start from 8.40am until 8.50am so that pupils can come in and settle and be ready to start the school day promptly. All children need to be in school, ready to start at 8.50am.  If your child arrives at school after 8.50am, they must be brought to the main office for their late mark. Pupils who are late miss an important part of their lesson, as well as disrupting other children. The academy day starts promptly at 8.50am, when the register will be taken. Any pupil arriving after this time will be marked with a code L. Any pupil arriving after 9.20am will be marked with a code U. This is classed as an unauthorised absence and does affect your child’s attendance and can result in the Education Welfare Service being involved.
