Parents have a legal duty to make sure their child attends school and is on School property at the correct time for registration and lessons to start. All students need to be on-site by 8.30am, if they arrive after this time they will need to sign in at the School Office. Students who arrive after 8.40am may be issued a break time detention unless there is a reasonable excuse for lateness. For more information on the process please click here. Three late arrivals will trigger and after school detention.
If your child is unwell please contact the School on 01732 853 241 or firstname.lastname@example.org by 8.00am to let us know, and this will be marked down in the register. Absence will be marked as unauthorised if no reason has been given.
Other absences can only be authorised by the Senior Leadership Team under exceptional circumstances.
No holiday requests will be authorised.
For more information please refer to the Attendance Policy.
South Eastern Attendance Advisory Service (SEAAS) are working with us to improve attendance and provide support to parents on this matter - for more information please click here.
