To inform the academy that your child is absent, please call the absence hotline on 01782 377159, where you will be able to speak to a member of the attendance team, or leave a message.
Please try to do this as early as possible on the first day, and where possible an indication of the length of absence. This may help to avoid follow up calls from the attendance team.
Please only use this number to report student absence, rather than the main academy number.
Please can we remind all parents that if your child is unable to attend, the absence is only authorised if there are genuine medical reasons. In some circumstances medical evidence may need to be provided.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact the attendance team on the number above during the working day.
Parents should familiarise themselves with the regulations effective from 1st September 2013, surrounding parent/carers taking their child/ren out of the Academy for the purpose of family holidays. We are committed to giving our students the best education available to them and to continue to raise our standards, this can only be achieved through regular attendance. Therefore we want to assure you that by following these guidelines we are helping your child/ren fulfil their potential by ensuring that they attend the Academy every day. We value the support of our parents/carers and we hope that you will continue to support both the Academy and your child/ren by taking all holidays outside of term time.
The new regulations are as follows:
