This week we met with our Educational Welfare Officer in Haringey and we were delighted to hear that our attendance figure, which is currently 97.2%, is the highest it has ever been in the history of the academy. Moreover, at 97.2% we are not only above the national average, but we are also the highest attending school in Haringey history!
Mr Welton, senior Educational Welfare Officer, informed us that the overall annual attendance record in a Haringey school is 97.1% and we are currently beating that! Huge thanks to Mr Welton and Mr Dawson, who, as many of you know, work incredibly hard to ensure children do not miss a day. We do this because we know you are better with us, than without us! Your children achieve higher with us than without us, and your children make more progress with us than without us! So please check all the school term dates and ensure that we not only maintain our historical attendance lead in Haringey but also improve it further.
Please also remember that we cannot and will not authorise absence in term time. Anyone who takes unauthorised absence is reported to Haringey who, in turn, issue fines starting at £60 but increasing to £120 per adult per child. If fines are not paid, then court action is taken so please do not take this lightly. We want all children to achieve their best. We work hard to ensure every moment counts in their education and we need parents to ensure they are in school to benefit from the learning we offer.
