Thank you for your support.
One of the basic ingredients to academic success is to be at school, ready to learn. We are proud of our students’ commitment to learning , which has led once again to our highest ever attendance. Students were in school for 96.3% of the school year, which is equivalent to missing just seven days each year.
We would like also to thank parents and carers for all your efforts in ensuring that your children are at school each day.
This year has also seen an improvement in punctuality, especially impressive in the light of the roadworks taking place on Hunt Lane. We expect students to be at school for 8.35am, giving them time to prepare for the first lesson at 8.50am. Where students arrive after 8.40am, they sign in with their Rad number. If a student arrives after 8.45am they receive a red card, which means they are required to attend a meeting at break time, where they complete a form to explain why they were late. Where a student may be persistently late, the Attendance Team can provide support to overcome what might be causing this.
