Attendance and Punctuality

The importance of excellent attendance

We want the absolute best for all our students and aim to create a welcoming and inclusive academy that encourages students to attend every day. We expect that every student should aim for 100% attendance and achieves no less than 95%. Our experience shows that with support from their family this level of attendance is achievable for the vast majority of pupils.

Our attendance is well above the national average

For the Academic year 2022-23, our overall attendance was 94.14%.

The national average for state-funded secondary schools in the UK was 90.7%.

Although it is slightly lower than our target, we are still incredibly proud of this achievement, as a result of the hard work, commitment and collaboration between students, families and academy staff.
