We routinely send out Pupil Postcards to celebrate when its going well and we reward the class each week with the highest attendance. They can vote for a celebration of their choice including a pajama day!
Taking Holidays During School Time
Your child has a right to a full education at Gulval School and research strongly indicates that absence from school has a detrimental effect on a pupil’s academic attainment.
- There are 175 days (weekends and school holidays) available to use for appointments and holidays
- There are 190 statutory school days in one year which your child needs to attend
- The school will not authorise any holidays during term time
To make satisfactory progress and establish good relationships with others, children must attend school regularly.
If a pupil does not arrive at school and we have not been informed as to why, we will contact parents that same day. Pupils achieving 100% attendance each term will receive a certificate.
