Parental Support

Pupils should come “ready to learn” and equipped for the school day.   

Punctuality and high attendance are strongly valued by the academy as they prepare the pupils for their future ventures both academically and in the world of work; we value our parents' support in ensuring pupils arrive at school on time and are rarely absent.  Results show that pupils with a high level of absence achieve lower GCSE grades than their peers; please contact your child’s Head of Year or tutor if you are concerned about your child’s attendance. 

You will be contacted by email/text message if your child does not arrive for registration in the morning.
