At Walkley Primary School, we are proud that our school pupil attendance is above national averages. It is no surprise that the high percentage of pupils coming to school regularly corresponds to the excellent attainment and progress we see our children make.


Every half term, as a reward for the children with 100% attendance, each child will receive a 100% attendance voucher with their name and the relevant half term date on. Therefore, there is the possibility to win 6 attendance vouchers per academic year.  Attendance vouchers can be saved or spent at the end of each half term or saved for the whole year. 


A booklet of prizes is available on the school website so that children and parents can see the type of prizes on offer. The more attendance vouchers saved, the more expensive the reward.


To claim your prize you will need to bring your 100% voucher(s) to Tennyson hall after school.

100% Attendance - Bank it or Spend it?

Learning time is precious and so to minimise the impact of being late we would like to highlight the procedures at the start of the school day for pupils in F2 to Y3. Please see the attached letter informing of the changes.
