Attendance & Progress

Regular attendance is essential for success.

If a student is absent we ask you to contact the school on the first day of absence to advise the reason. Requests for permissions to be absent should only be made in exceptional circumstances, and always in writing to the Principal. After each absence, however short, a student should bring a note from the parent or carer, stating the reason for the absence. 


The academy uses lots of different ways to track students' progress. We always welcome parents to come and meet with teachers so that an individual student's progress can be discussed. If you are interested in coming in to discuss your child's progress then please do not hesitate to contact the school office.


Each year, parents/carers receive a full written report on the progress and achievements of their children.
