The college has very high rates of attendance and punctuality; these contribute to our academic success.
Regular attendance and punctuality is crucial to learning. The college has an electronic system to register both daily college and individual lesson attendance. Parents are alerted to late registrations or non-attendance by an auto-text message in the morning when the registers have closed.
Should your child be unwell parents should telephone the college on 0208 672 8582 or send a message via the My Ed app (Report Absence tab is under the first My School page). This message should include your child’s name, tutor group and reason for absence.
Latecomers should sign in at reception. An appointment card must be shown if lateness is due to an appointment. A detention will be set for the same day if there is no acceptable reason for lateness.
TERM TIME ABSENCE
Holidays should not be taken in term time and written permission should be sought, from the Principal in advance,which will only be granted in extenuating circumstances. Click on the link below to download a holiday request form. This form must be printed, filled in and signed by the parent/carer and then handed to the college office in advance of the requested absence. We are sorry the college can not accept requests by email/MyED app.
