School Attendance: Every Day Counts
Here at Broadlands Academy our aim is to ensure that every pupil achieves their best and beyond. Every day counts and as such good school attendance is vital.
Broadlands Academy Attendance Target is 95%
Broadlands Academy work vigilantly to support parents and students to maintain a good level of school attendance. Any student who falls below our target of 95% attendance will be contacted.
Attendance is monitored on a daily basis by Year Co-ordinators and the Attendance Clerk. We use a Step system to manage and improve individual student’s attendance, please see our Attendance Policy for full details.
Broadlands Academy works closely with the Bath and North East Somerset Children Missing Education Service to address non-school attendance. This includes taking appropriate legal action and issuing Penalty Notices for unauthorised absences (please see our Attendance policy for full details).
Leave of absence for a family holiday in term time will not be authorised unless there are very exceptional circumstances. Requests of this nature should be put in writing to the Principal who will consider each request on an individual basis.
