Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Attendance and Punctuality

The Academy is committed to encouraging pupils to attend school regularly.  We work with parents and pupils to secure this aim.

  • Academy gates open each day at 8.45am (Anyone arriving after 8.55am must bring their child to the office to sign in late).
  • Children arriving after 9.30am will receive a code that represents they have arrived after the register has been closed. 
  • Parents/Carers MUST telephone the school before 9.20am on the first day their child is not attending school due to illness, and each subsequent day thereafter (unless a time of absence can be given on first day of illness eg:chickenpox).
  • Failure to report illness before 9.20am on each day will result in unathorised absence. FIVE days unauthorised absence or more will be reported to the Education Attendance Service.
  • Unauthorised absence could result in a fine and possible court proceedings.
  • We reward our children for attendance.
  • The school day finishes at 3.30pm
