School Attendance Matters

'Good attendance is an absolute priority!'



We find attendance is crucial for our pupils to achieve their full potential. This is why we have put in place an Award Scheme to encourage our pupils to have 100% attendance.

Rewards for 100% attendance include:


  • A £10 "one for all" voucher.  Winners are selected randomly.

  • Early lunch at 12.15 pm in our very own Zest Restaurant for the Form Class with the best attendance each month.


The effects that poor attendance has on a learner:


  • habits of poor attendance in school are often repeated in working life.

  • become isolated from friends.

  • underachieve in examinations.


90% attendance = a GCSE grade drop in each subject.
