Sixth Form Attendance: 01372 845 459 (24 hours)
At Rosebery, we firmly believe that all students benefit from regular school attendance. In fact, evidence suggests that a student with attendance of below 90% has only a 27% chance of achieving 5 grades 9-4 in their GCSE results, regardless of ability. 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.
Our expectation is that all students’ attendance is 100%, unless there is a genuine reason for absence approved by the Headteacher or delegated member of staff.
We expect that all parents/carers who have day to day responsibility for the children and young people will:
- encourage regular school attendance and be aware of their legal responsibilities
- ensure that the child/children in their care arrive at school punctually, prepared for the school day
- contact the school before 8.00am on the morning of each day of the student’s absence by calling the 24-hour attendance line. Any unexplained absence is recorded as unauthorised absence
- contact the school promptly whenever any problem occurs that may keep the child away from school
