Excellent attendance is essential
to excellent progress.

Good attendance is linked to strong educational and personal achievements. At Atlantic Academy, we value pupil’s attendance at school, and ask that parents do not book avoidable appointments or holidays during term time. We recognise that at times, appointments do need to be made which require a pupil to be absent from school, we ask that these are booked for the beginning or the end of the day if at all possible.

Please notify us of any absence on: absent@atlantic.academy, or by calling 01273 431969.

We celebrate excellent attendance, with the awarding of termly attendance stars for 100% attendance. Bronze stars are given for one term's excellent attendance, silver for two terms and gold stars for three consecutive terms of 100% attendance.

Students who work hard to improve their attendance are also recognised.

Attendance below 95% is challenged, this equates to 10 days of absence in any school year. There are links below to our attendance procedures and a flow chart for families.

Where absences are unavoidable, due to medical needs, please contact the school office so we can discuss how to support your child maintain their learning.
