Attendance

We expect the highest standards of attendance and punctuality. Research evidence and national statistics link good attendance to the achievement of academic and social potential. Attendance and punctuality also reflect pupil and parent commitment to achievement and to our school mission.

We encourage all pupils to work towards 100% attendance and set a minimum attendance target of 97% per year (equivalent to the top quartile of all English secondary schools).  Each week in our Weekly Celebration Assembly,  we award an Attendance Trophy to the best attending class for the week. Excellent attendance is celebrated and recognised at the end of each term at our awards assembly acknowledging both attendance to date and attendance for the half term.

Each half term we report on attendance and punctuality on the Half Termly Report Cards.
