Students‎ > ‎


At our Academy we promote good attendance to enable pupils to take full advantage of the educational opportunities we offer. Our staff monitor attendance and punctuality regularly and work closely with families to support good attendance.  School starts at 8:40am and ends at 3:00pm.

Students MUST be in school if they are to make the most of their skills and talents and if they are to take advantage of the many opportunities available in school

What to do if your child is absent from the academy

We expect all students to have 100% attendance. If a child is ill, or has to miss school, parents should contact our Attendance Officer, on the first and all subsequent days of absence, on 01452 865027 leaving your child’s name, class and reason for absence. This needs to be done every day by 9:00 am otherwise you will be contacted by our automated system.

Leave of Absence during Term Time

Parents are requested not to take their children on holiday during term time and holidays taken during term time are classed as unauthorised unless prior authorisation has been granted by the Principal.
