Attendance and Punctuality
Notifying of an absence
Parents or carers are asked to call Reception to speak to Ms Johnson or Ms Topalli to advise of any absence. This can be done via 0204 542 4900.
Request for a leave of absence
The academy is unable to authorise any requests for holidays during term time. If a parent wishes to request a leave of absence then please contact Reception and we will send the leave of absence request form.
Students are expected to arrive on time for their first session, which is either 8.50am or 10.50am.
If a student's absence is beginning to cause us concern, for example with trends and patterns of absence then we may refer the case to our external Education and Welfare Officer. We may also request proof of medical evidence before authorising any absence.
Our attendance and punctuality form can be accessed by clicking on the link below. This should be printed, along with any evidence e.g. confirmation email, and handed to Ms Eldridge on the first floor for Head of School approval by Ms Heuston. The attendance and punctuality policy should be read here.
