Attendance Expectations

We expect outstanding attendance for all; however, we do recognise that there are times when students we will absent from school. All our parents and carers are responsible for reporting reason for absence. Failure to report will result in unauthorised absence unless there are extenuating circumstances.

If attendance drops below 97% the school will work with parents and carers immediately to put a plan in place to make improvements.  As a school we work relentlessly to support students and families.

The table below sets out our definitions of attendance:

Additional support

If you are concerned about your child’s school attendance, it is always best to talk to us first. We have a dedicated Attendance team who are here to help students and families.

Students with attendance of less than 97% are monitored closely by the Pastoral Team (attendance and year group teams) We also have the specialist support of a Wellbeing coach and Community Support Attendance Officer who will be able to offer intensive support guidance to students and families to help to improve attendance.
