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 (Absence Hotline – found under messaging in the black bar at the bottom of the screen). This message should include your child’s name, tutor group and reason for absence.
Latecomers should sign in at the pupil entrance or 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, if extreme circumstances lead to parents wishing to take a pupil out of college during term time. Click on the link below to download a Holiday request form. Please note these should be signed & printed before handing to the college office. We are sorry the college can not accept requests by email.
