Regular attendance to school is vital.
Students should aim for 100% attendance.
It is very important to avoid any unnecessary absences.
- Medical and dental appointments should be arranged outside the academy day. Appointments that cannot be arranged outside the academy day will only be authorised with appointment letter or medical evidence.
- Holidays in term time will not be authorised.
Students should be in the academy by 8.20am. Persistent lateness will incur sanctions.
If a child is absent for any reason it is essential that parents/carers contact the academy absence line as early as possible.

Notes for Parents/Carers
When reporting an absence, please remember to leave your child’s name, Hometeam, reason for absence and the expected date of return if known.
If we do not receive a call informing us of your child’s absence, we will use our text messaging system to contact you asking you to provide a reason for the absence.
It is very important that we receive a telephone call for each day that your child is absent.
If your child is absent you may be visited by our Attendance Officer.
If your child’s attendance drops below 90% you will be referred to Bradford Education Social Work Service.
