- At Summerfields we consider regular attendance extremely important and it is our aim that every child attends school every day.
- Often parents are unaware of how a few days off 'here and there' can affect their child’s attendance, therefore we regularly monitor every pupil’s attendance.
- In recognition of good attendance we award an Attendance Trophy to classes and a SAM (School attendance matters) Bear in celebration assemblies.

My Child’s Progress
- You will be kept up to date with your child’s progress during the Autumn and Spring terms at Parents Meetings. Two formal reports will also be written about your child and sent to you during the Spring and Summer terms.
- You will be given a Parent Planner at the start of each topic with the themes and projects the children will be doing. This will help you support your child’s learning at home.
Helping My Child at Home
- Read to and with your child at home.
- Talk to your child and question them about things that they see and do.
- Help your child with their homework including learning their school spellings.
- Praise your child and try to remain positive with them.
Children are elected by their classmates to represent the class. Meetings are held at least half termly to discuss important issues relating to the school.
Permission slips and how to pay
- All school trips must be paid for in advance and permission slips returned by the deadline set in the letter advising of the trip.
- Payment must be via schoolmoney.co.uk or PayPoint as school are unable to accept payments.
