Attendance and absence

The Academy has a legal responsibility to monitor absence, alongside parents who have a legal duty to ensure their child attends school regularly.

We are really proud that our attendance rates reflect national averages and our rates of persistent absentees are decreasing on a yearly basis. This is due to our personalised and realistic approach to attendance. We firmly believe supporting parents and families with their child’s attendance is the best way forward.

We have a committed attendance team who would be happy to discuss any questions or concerns regarding your child’s attendance.

Please follow the guidelines below if your child is absent:
