School attendance is paramount to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfill their potential. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school. As an academy, pupil attendance is a key priority which we track and monitor rigorously.
Our attendance officer is Mrs J Oakes.
Can a parent take their child on holiday during term time?
Head teachers should only authorise leave of absence in exceptional circumstances. If the request for a holiday is not deemed to be for exceptional circumstances, then the request will be declined and the absence will be unauthorised.
There are 5 days within each school year where the school is closed to children; these days are used for teacher training and are called inset days.
