Church of England Community Academy

Attendance

Freemantle C of E Community Academy is proud to work with our other local area, primary and secondary schools regarding leave of absence and term time pupil holidays. 

 

There is no entitlement to leave of absence in term time so holidays should be taken during the regular holiday periods.  In line with government policy, our academy does not authorise leave of absence for family holidays during term time.  If you take your child out of the academy for a holiday, you risk the Local Authority issuing a penalty notice or pursuing a prosecution.

Why is Good Attendance Important?


Children attend school regularly:

  • To feel part of the “Freemantle Academy family” and are fully involved in the life of the school;
  • To make more progress in their learning;
  • To mix more easily with other children;
  • To develop an awareness of the importance of good attendance and punctuality which will help them in later life.

Lets look a little closer ……

 

Our academy target for each child is a minimum of 96%. This is the minimum acceptable level of attendance.


Days Off


If your child misses attending the academy for 1/2 a day each week, this equals 4 weeks of  the academy year and would mean their attendance would fall to 90%. If your child’s attendance fell below 90% it will be a cause for concern and would be monitored by the academy and may result in the involvement of the Education Welfare Officer. This may also lead to Penalty Notices being issued or court action (prosecution).
