Pupils have both a morning and afternoon registration session with their form tutors.
Each form takes part in the inter-form attendance leagues, with monthly Prizes awarded to the form with the best attendance.
We celebrate pupils’ individual attendance termly by awarding certificates for 100% attendance.
The school has an Attendance Officer who will contact you if your child is absent. Our Attendance Officer works closely with the Education Welfare Officer to ensure that pupils are in school, and learning. We encourage medical appointments to be booked outside of school hours where possible to minimise disruption to learning.
The school does not authorise any time off for holidays, or extended visits out of the country. Again, this is to ensure that pupils learning potential is maximised, as is their achievement.
Please see the Attendance policy for details.
Parents/carers are also responsible for ensuring that their son/daughter arrives at school punctually.
School starts at 8.45am each day and students are late if they are not in their classroom by 8.50am, any arrival after this time will incur an unauthorised absence. We will contact you if we have concerns about punctuality (3 lates or more in a half term) and ask that you support our procedures and that we work together to improve punctuality.
