Reporting an absence
All students should arrive at the Academy by 8:40am for registration. This is where their morning mark will be generated. It is therefore essential that students arrive on time in order to avoid a missed mark. If we still have no reason for absence by around 10:30am a text message will be sent to your mobile* or home phone to inform you that your child is not arrived at the Academy.
If your child is unable to attend the Academy, it is vital that you ring at the earliest opportunity. The Academy telephone number is 01254 885378 option 1 and you will have the option to leave a message. Please ensure you leave a clear message detailing your child’s name, form group and the reason for their absence. Please also identify your relationship to the student whom you are calling for.
If your child is not well enough to attend school and the absence is for more than one day it is extremely important that you provide a note for school on his or her return. If the absence is for a longer period (4 days or more) we require a medical note from your doctor.
* Please ensure that we have accurate contact details in case of any emergency, especially if you change your mobile.
