As a school, we pride ourselves on having a very high attendance percentage. Not only that, we have a low number of late arrivals. However, from time to time the late arrivals creep up and to combat them, Mrs Thompson came up with the Sad Alfie chart. Every week, each late arrival equates to 5 minutes and at the end of the week all the late arrivals per class are added up. Which ever class has the MOST late arrivals receives Sad Alfie :(, and it is recorded on a chart outside of Mrs Thompson’s office.


The aim of the game is to help your class and come to school on time! Children who attended school EVERY DAY all year on time will receive a special Happy Alfie badge!
