We continue to be amazed at how well the children have settled, well done to all our fab pupils. As restrictions lift nationally, the academy will also look to 'ease' some areas. This will be done in a careful and progamatic way. We will not put pupils and staff at risk. The academy will remain vigilant, and we ask that parents do the same and support us to continue to get things back on 'an even keel'. As the children are settled, we will now be implementing the LA and national guidance on absence and lateness......thank you for your support in getting the children to school and on time, it helps them to settle in the morning and helps us to support their learning.

Attendance Ambassadors at Freemantle Academy

 

At Freemantle Academy we use an initiative of peer led Attendance Ambassadors to not only improve attendance throughout school but to enable our pupils to role model outstanding school attendance and give a sense of responsibility to them ensuring that they can take ownership of class attendance and punctuality.

 

Attendance Ambassadors are chosen by their class teachers and take part in fortnightly sessions to enable them to confidently role model outstanding school attendance with their peers. This involves games and conversations regarding attendance.

 

They are presented with lanyards in a whole academy attendance assembly and are able to wear these with pride throughout the course of the programme.  In addition to this, they will be invited support the Senior Accountability Team on the gates to promote punctuality at school.

Stickers and certificates will be given to children on a number of occasions, by the Attendance Ambassadors... how many will your child collect?

The Education Welfare Service provides a service to Freemantle C of E Community Academy to try and raise attendance across the academy and support our children to make the best of all the opportunities they have.

They use a variety of different methods to find out what is causing a young person not to attend school. This could be anything from social to emotional and motivational issues.

The Education Welfare Service, run by Southampton City Council, supports our school and offers advice and guidance. Their main client is the child, but also work with families and professionals. 

They have a statutory duty to promote the attendance of children in the city and can use legal means to make this happen if needed.
