All students should aim for 100% throughout the academic year.


If your child is too ill to attend the academy, please phone the academy to explain the circumstances before 8.30am. A phone call is required for each day of absence.

All non-urgent medical appointments should be made outside of school hours. If this is not possible please ensure that a note is written in your child's planner explaining the time of departure and expected time of return to the academy. All students must be collected from the main academy reception.

The law makes it clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. All requests for leaves of absence will be considered on a case by case basis.
