PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.

Thanks for letting us know, we’ll let the year head know who can investigate further. If you do experience any issues they are your first port of call.

We’ll keep parents fully up to date prior to further live lessons being delivered.

Thank you to the teachers and staff in schools across the country this morning - you are part of our vital front line in the fight against coronavirus. Help schools to focus on the children who need a place most, and keep your kids at home if you can. https://t.co/Zp4lHO7gSH

Attendance and Punctuality

Regular attendance is a vital part of securing student welfare. Students at the Academy have an excellent attendance record. In order to best ensure the welfare of students, attendance is checked every morning and afternoon for every student and contact should be made with parents and carers where there is non-attendance. 

In order to support the Academy, we request that parents or carers contact the Academy by 9am by telephone in the event of absence.


The table below shows how the number of days absent works out as a percentage of total days in school in an academic year.

Attendance % Absence % Days Absent in a Year

17 days off school each year = 1 Grade lower at GCSE

Average earnings:

  • 0 Qualifications = £7.44 per hour
  • GCSEs = £9.02 per hour 'A' Levels = £10.25 per hour
  • Graduate degree = £15.01 per hour

School x Attendance = Success

  • 1 in 5 pupils miss 19 days a year. These pupils will drop at least ONE GCSE GRADE in each of your subjects.
  • 1-4 GCSE grades can increase your wages by 17%
  • 5 or more GCSE grades 5 to 9 can increase your wages by 41%
  • If you improve your attendance by 1% you could see a 5-6% improvement in your attainment

Lateness = lost learning

  • 5 minutes late each day 3 days lost
  • 10 minutes late each day 6.5 days lost
  • 15 minutes late each day 10 days lost
  • 20 minutes late each day 13 days lost
  • 30 minutes late each day 19 days lost

Thresholds of attendance

  • Pupils with attendance of 100% EXCELLENT
  • Pupils with attendance between 99% and 98% GOOD
  • Pupils with attendance between 98% and 95% SHOULD IMPROVE
  • Pupils with attendance below 95% VERY POOR – cause for concern
  • Pupils with attendance of 90% or lower (persistent absence). Serious cause for concern.
