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. We encourage all students to work towards 100% attendance and set a minimum attendance target of 97% per year (equivalent to the top 25% of all English secondary schools). Excellent attendance is celebrated and recognised at the end of each term at our awards assembly.
|99% to 97%||GOOD|
|96% to 95%||SHOULD IMPROVE|
|Below 95%||VERY POOR – cause for concern|
|90% or lower (persistent absence)||VERY POOR – serious cause for concern|
