Academy Enforcement Procedures

The Education Act 1996 states it a legal requirement once a parent has chosen an academy as their child’s educational provider, it is a parent’s duty to ensure their child attends the academy regularly and on time. We view a good pattern of attendance and punctuality at the academy as being a life skill and having a direct impact on the outcomes and achievement of children.

We aim to achieve the highest possible attendance by our pupils. Good attendance is an essential prerequisite to achieving high standards and we will take every opportunity to promote the importance of attendance with pupils and parents. We target 96% as ‘good attendance’ in our academy. We provide appropriate intervention and support plans for pupils with a record of poor attendance and monitor groups of pupils so that individuals are given the best opportunities to learn and achieve success.
