Full attendance is critical if you are to make the best use of your opportunities. Research shows that missing lessons has a seriously detrimental effect on your achievements.
Less than 90% attendance is enough to drop an attainment level/GCSE grade.
All students have their attendance monitored rigorously and where necessary we invite parents/carers in to offer support and discuss any issues.
Please support the Academy by sending your child in whenever possible.
Reporting a student absent
If your child is absent, due to illness or an appointment, it is important that you contact us to inform us as soon as possible.
If a student has not registered in the morning a text message will be sent to parents/carers. Parents/carers can reply to this message or alternatively contact the above number and leave a message.
