Mrs Conway is our lead for attendance at Laughton J&I. She works closely with the Senior Leadership Team, in particular Mrs Gill, and the Education Welfare Officer to monitor attendance in school and implement strategies to support families who are struggling with attendance issues. Please see our attendance policy on the policy page. The Education Welfare Officer (Mel Foster) meets with Senior Leaders regularly to discuss Local Authority guidance and to further suggest ways the whole school can support parents regarding attendance.
Each week the class with the highest attendance is rewarded with a 'Class of the Week' certificate. This is awarded in Monday's whole school assembly. We also have an 'Attendance Star' for an individual with outstanding or improved attendance in a particular month, i.e. a child who has come to school despite feeling a little under the weather.
Our attendance Governor is Mr James Horsfield. He meets and emails regularly with Mrs Conway to ensure school are doing all they can to support families in getting children to school regularly and on time!
For more information about attendance at Laughton please see our attendance board in the entrance hall or speak to Mrs Conway. She will do whatever she can to help!
