Important message for all parents
Good attendance is extremely important and is associated with improved student outcomes, higher attainment, and improved mental health.
Evidence shows that the students with the highest attendance throughout their time in school achieve the best GCSE and A Level results. Secondary school pupils who didn’t pass English and maths missed 10 more days over KS4 than those who did.
We urge all parents to ensure that students attend regularly and on time. Each day a student is absent, equates to 6 lessons of instructions and learning that is difficult to catch up on. Students have 175 days of non-school days and we have a duty to ensure all our students attend 190 days of learning. Holiday requests during term time will not be authorised. We thank all parents who make sure their daughters are in school everyday, ready to learn.
