Attendance

It is necessary for our Academy to keep accurate records of all attendance, absence and poor time-keeping.

It is vital that all children attend school regularly.  We are keen to support parents with school attendance and if you would like to discuss how we can support you, please contact school to speak with our Parent Support Adviser.

Requests for absence during term time

Pupils who have medical or dental appointments during school hours are not permitted to leave unaccompanied; in every case a responsible person known to the academy must collect them. Please inform the office in advance of any appointments and the identity of the person collecting the child if not the parent or carer. Wherever possible, we require that medical appointments are made out of school hours.

We assess any request for absence on a case-by-case basis but we will not authorise term time holidays unless in very exceptional circumstances.

The academy will continue to work with the local authority to address issues of poor attendance. The local authority has the power to issue fixed penalty notices in the most serious situations.
