Attendance at Chiltern Academy is a priority for our pupils and staff are invested in ensuring that pupils are fully aware of the positive correlation between attendance and achievement.
Pupils have both a morning and afternoon registration session with their form tutors. Each form takes part in the inter-form attendance leagues, with monthly certificates awarded to the form and the House with the best attendance. We celebrate pupils’ individual attendance termly by awarding certificates for 100% attendance.
The school has an Attendance Officer who will contact you if your child is absent. Our Attendance Officer works closely with the Education Welfare Officer to ensure that pupils are in school, and learning. We encourage medical appointments to be booked outside of school hours where possible to minimise disruption to learning.
The school does not authorise any time off for holidays, or extended visits out of the country. Again, this is to ensure that pupils learning potential is maximised, as is their achievement.
Please see the Attendance policy for details.
