Punctuality and Registration
The threshold for persistent absence (PA) was reduced from 15% to 10% in September 2015. The DfE recognises the successful work undertaken by schools and academies to improve overall attendance rates and reduce the numbers of PA pupils and now wants to increase the level of challenge.
Punctuality is a good habit for everyone and is considered to be important throughout your life. Arriving late to school or lessons inconveniences a whole range of people and can affect the learning opportunities of many learners, including YOU!
a) Be on site for 8.45am and 1.05pm ( if you go home for lunch) in order to make your way to your form room and lessons on time.
b) If you arrive to school after 8.50am and 1.15pm you will be recorded as late by your form tutor/subject teacher.

Home School Liaison
The Home School Liaison Office, on behalf of the school, operates a First Day Response system. It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to contact the school on the first day of absence. If the school has not been notified of the absence the Home School Liaison Officer will attempt to contact parents/carers.
