At Athena Learning Trust, we firmly believe that all students benefit from excellent school attendance. Excellent attendance is key to high academic achievement and feeling part of each of our school communities. To this end, we will do all we can to ensure that our students achieve maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent full attendance are identified and acted upon promptly.
We intend to establish systems and practices across our family of schools which will:
Create an ethos in which excellent attendance is the norm
Maintain a safe, secure environment where students feel valued and welcome, thereby positively encouraging attendance.
Raise student awareness of the importance of punctuality and uninterrupted attendance, and encourage in students a sense of responsibility.
Celebrate excellent school attendance.
Support students and families who experience difficulties maintaining good school attendance
If you have any questions or concerns regarding attendance at any of our family of schools, please contact them directly in the first instance, or consult their individual attendance policy.
