Attendance

Attendance at the Academy is now topping 95%, almost 2% up on the end of last academic year. Educationalist comment that attendance is one of the hardest things to move in a school, yet we have made massive strides. This is down to the hard work of staff, students and parents, the culture change has been massive. Many thanks to all parents who are supporting us to get children feeling slightly unwell into the academy. This will have a positive impact on students for the rest of their working lives, creating a ‘can do’ working culture.
We rewarded Year 11 with a trip to Drayton Manor for all those students with excellent or improving attendance. Over 200 students went on the rewards trip, and as usual, they were a credit to the academy. They even managed to get me on one of the rides.
