Good attendance is perhaps the most important factor in successful learning. At Wren Academy, students are encouraged to have 100% attendance. Students arriving after 9.30 am will be counted as absent.
If your child is absent then you must telephone the Academy office by 8.30 am on the first day of absence. If your child is absent for more than three days, you must send a note to the office on the third day of absence explaining why they are away. Please also provide any medical notes or copies of hospital appointments for our records.
Parents are requested not to arrange family holidays or visits during term time. Applications for such visits will not be approved and will count as unauthorised absence. If you wish to request leave of absence during term time, please obtain a blue form from Reception and return it for the Headteacher to consider.
Punctuality is essential if your child is going to make the most of their learning. Unless your child is taking part in a before school activity, they must be at their drop off area by 8.45 am. If they arrive after 8.45 am, the parents will need to bring them down to our primary entrance themselves and they will be marked as late.
