We expect outstanding attendance from all of our students. It is expected that all students will meet our 96% attendance target and will strive to achieve 100% attendance.
Poor attendance is the single greatest inhibitor to success. Put simply; if you’re not here, you can’t learn!
All students should be ready to enter the academy gates for 8.30am and should ensure that they are punctual to all lessons. Any known absences should be communicated to both the form tutor and our student services/ attendance team as soon as possible.
Students are not permitted to leave the academy site without staff permission. This will only be granted via prior contact from parents/carers.
It is expected that parents/carers will:
- Keep their contact details up-to-date with the academy
- Ensure that their child arrives on time and prepared for their learning
- Contact the academy on the first day of any absence (and keep the academy updated on a daily basis regarding any absences)
- Discuss any issues that may affect the student’s attendance with the academy as soon as possible
