School Every day at WPS
At Woolton Primary School we know that excellent school attendance is the key to successful schooling and we want to ensure our children have the best educational experience possible.
Attending school everyday will help give our child the best possible start in life.
Going to school every day means :
- Learning new skills
- Making friends
- Having lots of fun
- Building new relationships
- Taking part in exciting activities
Regular attendance ensures children have the biggest chance to succeed, develop their confidence and to make and keep lasting friendships.

96%+ weekly challenge
Do you know about the Woolton?
The Woolton (W) is our new school currency, each class now has its own savings account with the bank of WPS and will be able to collect Wooltons for a range of achievements.
Every week that a class exceeds our 96% attendance target they will receive W20 for their savings jar in class and this will be recorded in their WPS Bank Account.
Classes can achieve additional Wooltons, for example, W10 if everyone brings in their PE kit and W50 for a 100% homework return. Our school council have again been busy thinking of lots of ideas for both earning and cashing in Wooltons. They have also designed our Woolton notes - look out for some familiar faces!!
Classes will have the chance to spend their Wooltons or keep saving at the end of each half-term - exchange rates may however fluctuate so there will be lots of decsions to be made.
We have appointed a team of Y5 mathematicians to manage the Bank of WPS, and they will be updating you soon.
We will also keep you updated on the latest exchange rates!!
Our new Monday and Friday Attendance Challenge
We have recently introduced a new range of activities to reward and support good attendance at WPS. When we noticed our attendance was regulary dipping below our 96% target on Mondays and Friday we introduced two new class challenges for both these days.
The Monday Morning 100% Challenge
When a class achieves 100% attendance on a Monday our special attendance trophy is sent to their class, they also work their way through a set of reward activities from bronze to silver and gold.
The Friday Surprise
Classes achieving 100% attendance on Friday receive the Friday surprise on a Friday afternoon. Our School Council thought of lots of ideas for surprises and the surprise is different each week. Classes record the date and their surprise on a special chart in their classroom.
We will tell you which classes have achieved these awards in the attendance section of our weekly newsletter.
