Attendance

Attendance

There is clear evidence to suggest that young people have a much greater chance of success if their school attendance is good (95% +): certainly, our own College data supports this. 

In addition, they are more likely to make friends and develop greater confidence, as well has have the opportunity to participate in a wider range of activities.
Children are expected to attend every day of the College year: the law states that they should only be absent if the reason is unavoidable.

Each absence has to be classified by the College as authorised or unauthorised, so it is really important that parents and carers inform us of the reasons for any absences.
Our College Governors have stipulated that we should not authorise any holidays in term time, other than for exceptional circumstances. 

Please refer to the documents below for further details or, if you have any queries or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Sharon Rees, our Attendance Officer on 720019 or srees@eggbuckland.com
