EXPECTED SCHOOL Attendance 2017/18: 100%

High levels of attendance are a priority for the school. There is an undisputable link between good attendance and high achievement. Our aim is to ensure that your child receives the maximum benefit from his/her education by attending school every day. A combination of parental support and cooperation with the school is key to us achieving this aim.

We continue to see improvements in whole school attendance and how this contributes to individual students in their GCSE & A Level results. It is for this reason we have removed school attendance targets this year, in favour of a RAG rated system for parent and student guidance. See below:

Expected School Attendance 2016/17

Whilst we recognise that some absence may be unavoidable, we appreciate your continued cooperation in ensuring that all absence is kept to a minimum and ask that you adhere to the school’s attendance procedure, as outlined in the attendance protocol, a copy of which can be downloaded below.
