Attendance and Punctuality Expectations

Our School  attendance  target is 96% 

High levels of attendance and a punctual start to the day are vital for pupils to ensure they make the maximum academic progress whilst developing the organisational skills needed for future life. Promoting excellent attendance is the responsibility of the whole school community including staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors. 

  • All pupils should be at School, on time, every day, unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. 
  • If your child is sick and is unable to attend school, then please call the school office before 9:00am.  
  • Occasionally, there may be other reasons why your child does not want to attend school and we strongly encourage you to call the school to discuss such matters with the form tutor and head of year in the first instance. 
  • All pupils are expected to be in school for first lesson at 9:00 am
