|Regular attendance at school is key to ensuring that children have the best opportunity to reach their full potential. |
Our whole academy target for attendance is 96.5% which equates to children having no more than 7 days off in the academic year.
Please also note than any absences after the register has closed will impact on your child’s attendance.
Attendance is monitored daily. Where children are absent without reason they will receive a phone call to establish why the child is absent. Where phone calls are not answered home visits will be undertaken. If we are unable to make contact and have any concerns around the welfare of the child or parent we may need to contact social care or 101.
We will also undertake home visits to check on the welfare of children where necessary.
If your child is going to be absent from school please contact the office from 8:30am on (01482) 224336 on each day of absence. Where we haver concerns around children’s attendance parents/carers will be invited to meet with Mrs Shepherd who is our academy lead for attendance. Where appropriate the academy will follow Hull City Council guidance around enforcement. Half termly attendance report letters will be sent to families where pupils are ‘at risk’ of becoming a persistent absentee and whose attendance is below 95%.
If you have any questions or queries relating to attendance please speak to Mrs Shepherd.
