Admissions, Attendance and Punctuality
Good attendance and punctuality are essential to pupils’ educational success and theschool awards certificates for high levels of attendance. It is a legal requirement that pupils should be at school unless they are ill. The Headteacher’s permission isneeded for all other absences. If a pupil is absent, it is essential that the school iscontacted as soon as possible on the first day of their absence. On return a note of explanation should be sent with them. In the case of a long illness the school needsto be regularly informed of the pupil’s progress and appropriate work will be provided to complete at home. The Snaith School rigorously monitors attendanceand punctuality.The Education Welfare Officers working with the school liaise closely with primaryschool colleagues and families to investigate all unexplained or frequent absences.2The school’s annual admission number is 179 pupils.The school is oversubscribed.Admissions procedures are the responsibilityof the Local Education Authority. If the schoolis oversubscribed, parents can use the appeals procedure.
In 2008/2009 Attendance Rates were as follows:Number of Pupils on roll for at least one session 830Percentage of sessions of authorised absence5.4%Percentage of sessions of unauthorised absence0.1%
Pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities (LDD) receive high quality learning support delivered by a team of specialist teacher and support staff under the management of the SENCO. The school provides a combination of appropriately modified curricula, in-class support, small group work and 1:1 support. Depending on individual needs this ensures that all pupils receive the help they needto achieve success.Each department is responsible for monitoring the progress of all pupils, with or without LDD. Underpinning provision for pupils withspecial educational needs is the development and maintenance of close relationships with parents and support agencies. The school’scomprehensive LDD Policy is available on request.
There are many opportunities for pupils to take part in extra curricular activities. These vary each year depending on staff and pupil interest and demand.In addition many subject areas offer opportunities to take part in educationalexperiences and visits, for example to the theatre or major sporting events. Theschool has an Educational Visits Coordinator.
The school actively encourages positive press coverage and from time to time invites the Press into school to take photographs of events. In addition, we use photographs on the school website. An “opt-out” policy operates for any parents who DO NOT wish their child to appear in such coverage or photographs which appear in articles, on the web site, the school prospectus or other printed publications that we produce as well as on project display boards at our school. Photographs or film footage of a visiting dignitary or high profile event may be covered by the Press and images may appear in local or national newspapers, or on televised news programmes.If you
wish your child to take part in such marketing activities please write to the Headteacher stating clearly that you do notwish your child to be featured in this way.
