We expect that you will:

  • Always encourage regular attendance and be aware of your legal responsibilities.
  • Always ensure that your child arrives at punctually and fully prepared for the Academy day.
  • Ensure that you contact the Academy whenever your child is unwell and unable to attend Academy.
  • Contact the Academy by 9.00 am on the first day of the child’s absence and telephone every day thereafter unless your child has a doctor’s certificate.
  • Contact us promptly whenever any problem occurs that may keep your child away from Academy.

Responding to Non-Attendance
When a pupil does not attend Academy we will respond in the following manner:

  • On the first day of absence, if we have not heard from you by 10.00 am we will phone you.
  • If by the end of the second day, there has still been no contact made we will send a letter of concern and invite you into Academy to discuss your child’s absence. You will be notified that if the absence persists a referral will be made to Education Welfare (EW).
  • Failure to comply with the expectations set by EW may result in further action, an application for an Education Supervision Order, or court prosecution.

Parents Evenings

  • Parent/teacher consultation evenings a chance to find out how your child is doing in school. There are consultation evenings in the autumn and spring terms.
  • Open afternoons once a term parents are invited into school to have a look around and see their child’s work.
