At Cayton School, we believe that every student deserves the best education possible, which is why we place such a strong emphasis on good attendance. Research shows that students who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve better grades, develop strong study habits, and attain higher levels of academic achievement.

Our school attendance target is 96%. This is highlighted in our Friday Attendance Assembly. Our weekly figures are broken down into class percentages and the highest attending class, each week, receives the Attendance Trophy.

Every child with 96%+ attendance is awarded a raffle ticket for our family reward raffle at the end of each half term. Pupils with extenuating circumstances are also considered for the raffle. The winning ticket receives a prize for their whole family!

Children and parents are aware that if a pupil's attendance drops towards 90%, this is considered persistent absence and support is offered to enable families to ensure their child's attendance improves. 

Weekly Attendance 2023 - 2024

Our School attendance figure to date is 95.86%


Year 4 won the Attendance Trophy again this week, with 98.5% attendance. Our whole school attendance percentage is 3% above the national average for the year!
