Every student should attend school every day that they are expected to.
There are times when we, in line with government coding guidance, will authorise absence from school. Excellent attendance is intrinsically linked to academic achievement and progress. Students who have regular absence, patterns of unauthorised absence, broken weeks of attendance and high levels of absence for minor illness are unlikely to achieve their academic potential.
The Olympus Academy Trust prioritises the monitoring, support and robust action needed to secure high levels of attendance and works in close partnership with the Local Authority to place matters before the court in circumstances where parents/carers do not ensure that their child attends school regularly and punctually.
The following Attendance Phases are a guide for students and parents on the steps that the school will take to support the regular attendance of students at school.
