Student Attendance

Student attendance

A good education can be the cornerstone for future life opportunities. Missing school can leave gaps in knowledge and understanding and also place the student at a disadvantage in both their educational development and potentially in their eventual GCSE success.

We understand that on occasions absence will be unavoidable. However our minimum expectation of attendance is 96%, unless there are justifiable medical reasons, and accompanying evidence for not being able to do so. The aspiration obviously remains 100%

If for any reason your child is missing school, please just talk to us, we want to help!

Please continue to use the normal telephone numbers to call us if your child is going to be absent from school.
