Research has shown that regular attendance and good punctuality are crucial factors in students achieving their full potential in education. At St Anne’s Academy we wish to work in strong partnership with parents and carers to ensure we can achieve the best for and from everyone. This means we are seeking your full support in ensuring that your child attends school every day and on time. We are always pleased to work together with parents and carers in resolving any difficulties or barriers to learning but we are also committed to improving attendance levels at St Anne’s.
The target attendance figure for all students is a minimum of 97% attendance. Based on current attendance figures your child will be placed in one of the following groups below.
|Group 1: No Concern||– Green Group –||The child attends for 97% – 100% of the time.|
|Group 2: Concern||– Yellow Group –||The child attends for 95% – 96.9% of the time.|
|Group 3: Risk of Underachievement||– Amber Group –||The child attends for 93% – 94.9% of the time.|
|Group 4: Severe Risk of Underachievement||– Pink Group –||The child attends for 90% – 92.9% of the time.|
|Group 5: Extreme Risk of Underachievement||– Red Group –||The child attends for 0% – 89.9% of the time.|
Your child will be informed of their Attendance Group by their Form Tutor on a regular basis. St Anne’s Academy are monitoring students closely whose attendance is falling and will contact you if your child’s attendance does not improve. As a parent or carer you are committing an offence if you fail to ensure that your child attends school regularly and punctually, even if they are missing school without your knowledge. It is important that parents and carers monitor single day’s absence, as these days soon add up to weeks.
At St Anne’s Academy we reward pupils who attend each day and whose attendance is improving. Students are also rewarded for good punctuality.
If you are concerned about our ‘Focus on Attendance’, there are important steps that you can take:
Thank you for working in partnership with us to achieve the highest possible levels of attendance and punctuality at St Anne’s Academy.
