Attendance and punctuality

We expect high levels of attendance and punctuality from all our students.

Students must be in school by 8.25am. Anyone arriving after 8.35am will have a 30 minute detention that day, known as PM detention.

Students who are persistently late will receive further sanctions, such as SLT/ESLT detentions, and/or meetings with parents.

Parents should report all student absences as early as possible on each day of absence, including the reason for absence and the expected date of return. Absence may be recorded on Edulink, which is the preferred method of communication, or by emailing Messages may also be left on the absence line, 020 8948 1173 option 1.

Holidays and visits must not be taken during term time. Any requests for such absence will be declined unless there are exceptional circumstances which must be evidenced and approved. If you wish to discuss term time holidays please contact your child's head of year or the headteacher.
