Attendance

Our Attendance Team monitors attendance & punctuality regularly and works closely with families to support good attendance.

School starts at 8:40 and ends at 3:10

At our academy we promote good attendance to enable pupils to take full advantage of the educational opportunities we offer. Our Attendance Team monitors attendance and punctuality regularly and works closely with families to support good attendance. Last year’s school attendance level was 93%.

What to do if your child is absent from the academy

Please phone our Attendance Officer Mrs Mayell on the first day of absence on 0208 803 1738 x393 leaving your child’s name, class and reason for absence. This needs to be done every day by 10:00 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 head teacher.


The Sixth Form Attendance Team monitors attendance & punctuality regularly and works closely with families to support good attendance.

Our students, parent/carers and staff have made huge efforts to keep attendance at the forefront of their minds. We wish all of our students to achieve at least 95% attendance. Research tells us that if students attend schools/academies at this level every term they will reach their full potential.

Students are expected to attend all timetabled lessons and VT every day. If they are unable to attend any timetabled lesson they should inform their lesson teacher and Sixth Form attendance lead.

There are rewards for high attendance.

Please follow the following attendance procedures:
