Success is built on good habits, excellent attendance and punctuality is an integral part of a positive and successful education. These basics habits form the foundation of a successful day.
School starts at 8:40 AM and pupils must arrive by 8:50 AM to ensure they are not late for their classes.
Without regular attendance, levels of attainment suffer and opportunities are missed to obtain maximum benefit from education. Persistent absence and lateness will affect a child's achievement and progress in school. Severn Academies Educational Trust believe that regular attendance is vital. All schools within our Trust use the Application for Leave of Absence Form, each request will be reviewed using the information provided and a decision will be sent to you in writing.
