We ask that parents report the absence of their child. The procedure is the same as what they would have done in lower school in that we require a phone call on the day of each absence. In the case of a planned absence such as a hospital appointment, funeral or interview students are required to complete an absence slip and have this signed by the form tutor and handed to the Post 16 office. Students are required to make their own arrangements to collect any work missed. In cases of unplanned absence, the Post 16 team will endeavour to inform individual tutors of lessons affected.
Students who wish to request absence from a school day (including AC Days) must complete the Student Absence Request form & hand to their tutor to request approval. Approval is dependent upon current attendance being at 95% as a minimum.
Pastoral support is readily available should a student need this. They can contact any member of the Post 16 staff or any of our Learning Mentors. If you feel that your son or daughter’s happiness, well-being or progress is being affected by any our Post 16 Team are here to ensure that every students succeeds, whatever their worries.
Form Time attendance is compulsory two mornings per week and makes up a student’s learning hours. They are also expected to attend assembly every Wednesday during form tutor time, which contributes to a full time course. It is important that every student attend so that we can track their progress, UCAS applications, careers advice needs, offer pastoral support etc. Students who choose not to attend form will find that their attendance figure greatly affected. Attendance figures are often requested from employers/universities when calling for references. Due to safeguarding and legal reasons, attendance records have to be marked as unauthorised absence if students fail to attend for any other reason than a planned absence or illness.
These are compulsory and make up a student’s full time learning hours. They are designed to support independent study, homework and can be used by Year 13 to complete their UCAS application, providing all work is up to date. Students are asked to come prepared for study sessions.
