Attendance Policy

What is the Attendance Policy? This sets out the rules & expectations we have agreed acceptable for Sixth Form Students' attendance.

There is a correlation between attendance and academic achievement. We have devised an attendance policy with an expectation that our students are serious in their intention to study and thus will be here at least 95% of the time for both their lessons and mentor time. We will recognise and acknowledge Excellent Attendance but challenge that which falls below this standard being mindful, of course, of genuine welfare reasons when these arise. Any student whose attendance falls below the 95% target will be given an action plan and support to improve. Failure to meet attendance targets may result in removal from a course or jeopardse a students place in the sixth form. We will liase with parents/carers in order that they can support students with low attendance.
