BACA Attendance Lottery!

We now hold an attendance lottery every Wednesday afternoon at BACA.  All students are entered into the draw with one name chosen at random each week.  The student who is chosen must have had 100% attendance for the previous week in order to claim their prize.

Each week a £10 Love to Shop voucher is up for grabs.  Prizes not claimed roll over to the following week!

Congratulations to this term’s winners so far!

Week 1: Elise F

Week 2: Evan W

Week 3: Rollover

Excellent attendance is key to being successful at school.  Students with good attendance (>96%) achieve better results at the end of their school careers, tend to be happier at school and are more likely to go on to have successful careers.

We monitor the attendance of all students paying extra attention to those whose attendance falls below 95%.  Our Education Welfare Officer becomes involved should attendance drop below 90%, this is called persitant absence and is likely to have a significant impact on student progress.  It is important to provide a reason and where possible, evidence for any absence from school*.

*Any absence that occurs once a students attendance is below 90% must be accompanied by evidence. Parents are at risk of being fined or prosecuted if a students attendance falls below 90% and there are further unauthorised absences
