Attendance and behaviour

Attendance

We expect the highest standards of attendance and punctuality. Research evidence and national statistics link good attendance to the achievement of academic and social potential. Attendance and punctuality also reflect pupil and parent commitment to achievement and to our Academy mission. We encourage all students to work towards 100% attendance and set a minimum attendance target of 97% per year (equivalent to the top quartile of all English secondary schools). Excellent attendance is celebrated and recognised at the end of each term at our awards assembly.

Behaviour

Our approach to behaviour and discipline can be described as “tough love”. We operate a firm but fair approach. We apply this rigorously, robustly and consistently. We want to make sure that disruptive behaviour by the few does not damage the achievements of the many. The Codes of Conduct for Staff and Students and the Home-School Agreement set out our expectations clearly.

Rewards and sanctions

Every student is special and we regularly identify, reward and celebrate their many successes. These successes can be in any aspect of school life. They include rewards for regular attendance, outstanding achievement or making a good contribution to the local community. We use a wide range of rewards ranging from simply saying well done to issuing certificates and prizes. We hold regular celebration assemblies and special events, such as the annual presentation evening, to celebrate the achievements of our students. If standards at the School are to be maintained, it is equally important to have a clear, consistent sanctions system.
