Attendance

In order for your child’s achievement and attendance we do request the following;

If your child is too ill to attend or requires medical attention, please do understand the importance of the Attendance Teams attempts to contact you. This is in order for the Academy to be secure in the knowledge that your child is indeed safe with you and has not suffered a possible mishap on the way to the Academy.

The Attendance Team will expect information in regards to every day’s absence, either by telephone, via the My Ed app, or from the parent/carer in person. (You are always welcome to visit the school office in person.) Absence information must be received by 8.20am every day, or as near to that time as possible. Siblings are not permitted to explain absences, we require absence details from parents and carers only please.

If for any reason you are unable to give us a telephone call or message on the My Ed app, we do request that you keep your phone with you as the Attendance Team will be attempting to make contact directly with you.

If the Attendance Team are unable to contact you by telephone, a home visit will always be necessary. (This will always result in a follow up meeting, here at the Academy, in order to check that all of the contact numbers we hold are indeed correct and up-to-date in order to secure safeguarding.)

The above process is followed for every absence in order to be secure in the knowledge that if your child is not safe here at the Academy, we can be confident that your child is indeed safe at home with you.

Every school day counts.

Days off school add up to lost learning and we do not want any students missing out on the education they deserve.

Please take a moment to look over our attendance process and the consequences of your child not being in school.

You can monitor your child’s attendance using the My Ed app. Please keep the office up to date with your contact details to ensure that you can always access the restricted My Students tab that shows your child’s attendance percentage, achievements and other personal details.
