Students are safest and have the best chances of future success when they are in school every day. We work closely with families to ensure students achieve their attendance target and exceed 95%. There has been extensive research into the impact attendance has on final GCSE results and students will attendance below 95% are significantly less likely to achieve five good GCSEs.
We run many competitions and initiatives to promote good attendance and recognise improvements. Some initiatives run for short periods of time for smaller rewards while others run for a longer period of time.
We have a highly experienced Attendance Improvement Officer who leads our Attendance Team. They will work with students and families to overcome any barriers that they have to attending.
