At Avonbourne Academies, we aim for an environment which enables and encourages all members of the community, to be proud to belong and to achieve of their best. For our students to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and should be at Academy, on time, every day the Academy is open, unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.
It is very important therefore that you make sure that your son/daughter attends regularly, and this policy sets out how together we will achieve this.
Any absence affects the pattern of a student’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning. Any student’s absence disrupts the learning of others in the same teaching groups by disrupting classroom routines. Ensuring your son’s/daughter’s regular attendance at the Academy is your legal responsibility and permitting absence from the Academy without a good reason creates an offence in law and may result in prosecution.
