Absence from lessons is unacceptable without good reason.  Attendance is recorded and forms part of a student’s final school reference.

Please note the following:

  • If your child is absent from any part of the school day for any reason, including tutor time, compulsory assembly and SMSC sessions, please call 01342 410140, and leave a message on the sixth form absence line by 8.25am. Alternatively, please send an email to notification MUST come from a parent/carer, not the student. 
  • If your child arrives late for a lesson they must advise the Attendance Officer of the reason behind their lateness.
  • Any request for permission for an authorised absence, eg. a medical appointment, driving test, religious event, attendance of a funeral etc, must come from a parent/carer to the Attendance Officer. 
  • If your child becomes unwell whilst at school and decides to return home please can they advise the Attendance Officer before leaving. Please note Mrs Hill in Medical is still on hand to support the sixth form students if they are unwell at school
