The Academy has an attendance target of 97%.

The biggest barrier to achieving our target is holidays taken during term time.

Any lateness or absences can have a negative impact on your child’s progress.

We ask that holidays are only booked during the academy holiday periods.

The academy does not authorise term time absences and adheres to government guidelines with regard to fining and rigorously applies these.

Lateness = Lost Learning

Minutes late each day = Learning lost each year

 5 minutes late   =   3 days lost
10 minutes late   =   6 ½ days lost
15 minutes late   =   10 days lost
20 minutes late   =   13 days lost
30 minutes late   =   19 days lost

Awards and small prizes are given termly and for the whole year for all children achieving 100% attendance.

Unfortunately we are only able to award children who have no absences at all during a given period. This excludes children with unauthorised and authorised absences. Authorised absences cover a range of things such as medical appointments, illness and visits to new schools.

We also award a half-termly prize to the class with the best attendance as part of our commitment to acknowledging the value the academy places on good attendance.
