Attendance

AttendanceAt Queen Elizabeth's Academy we expect the highest levels of attendance possible and do not accept excuses for absence except in extreme circumstances. Our aim is to have every student achieve a minimum of 97% attendance and ultimately aim for 100% attendance and punctuality.

The information below should help both students and parents/carers ensure we achieve the highest possible attendance levels.

Absence
If your child is absent please contact the academy as soon as possible on the first day of absence. Our attendance office is staffed from 8.00am to take your calls (01623 623559 ext 272). If we do not hear from you and your child is not in the academy, then we will call/text you. This system is for your child’s safety and your peace of mind.

Students who arrive to school late (after 8.30am) must sign in at the attendance office and will receive a late mark on their attendance record.

Holidays
If you require to take your child out of the academy during term time you must complete a ‘Leave of Absence during Term Time’ request form. Requests are subject to authorisation by the Principal and are only authorised in exceptional circumstances. If you have any queries please contact the attendance office who will be happy to assist you.
