Aspire Academy aims to maximise attendance rates for all of its students. Attendance is a key indicator of attitudes to learning and is a sign that we are actively engaging students. We work in close partnership with parents/carers to encourage the regular attendance of students. Whilst it is understood that parents/carers are primarily responsible for ensuring that their children attend school, we believe it is also our responsibility to support attendance. Parents/carers are regularly reminded that an unjustified absence is not acceptable.

Parents/carers are required to support the Aspire Academy Behaviour Support Plan and to sign the Aspire Academy Contract in support of their children.

Aspire Academy supports attendance through:

  • Close liaison with parents/carers
  • A clear policy on absence and by clearly defining our expectations of students and parents/carers at interview
  • Close monitoring of students’ attendance at morning and afternoon registrations
  • Working closely with the Educational Welfare Officer.
  • Home tuition sessions where appropriate
  • A Rewards Scheme
