Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Attendance and Punctuality

The Academy is committed to encouraging pupils to attend school regularly. We will 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 late after 9.30am (after register closes) will receive an unauthorised absence for the morning.
  • Parent/carer MUST telephone 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 of illness results in unauthorised absence. 5 days unauthorised absence or more will be reported to the Education Attendance Service which, in classes Reception – Year 2 could result in a fine.
  • Unauthorised absence will result in a fine and possible court proceedings.
  • We reward our children for good attendance and the class with the best attendance each week is announced in Mondays PLTS assembly.
  • The school day finishes at 3.20am (Foundation Stage) and 3:25pm (Key Stage 1).
