Attendance

Attendance

 

Weelsby Academy have Nicola Spray, the Education Welfare Officer for Delta Trust and Lisa Wilkin from North East Lincolnshire Council helping to monitor the attendance of pupils and their punctuality. 

School attendance and attainment are closely linked.  They work with parents to ensure children reach their full potential by attending school regularly. 

Both Nicola and Lisa are here to help and support you in getting your child into school, on time, and ready to learn! 

Below you will find detailed the current attendance figures for each class. 

Every Wednesday we have a raffle for those children who has had 100% attendance during the previous week and been on time every day. The lucky winner receives a £10 voucher!

95% attendance is:

  • 10 days absence per year from school
  • 70 days or 14 weeks missed from a child's primary school education

90% attendance is:

Lateness not only affects your child's education - it doesn't allow them the social time to settle with their friends, they may feel upset or embarrassed, and it disrupts the rest of the class.

 Being frequently late for school adds up to lost learning:

Registers close after 30 minutes, any pupils attending after that time are classed as unauthorised absence.

 

Leave of Absence

In September 2013, the government released new legislation preventing Head Teachers from authorising term time holidays other than in exceptional circumstances.

 

We can no longer automatically accept letters from employers as a reason for approval, nor can we accept special offers, holidays as gifts or prizes as reasons to authorise the holiday. 

We consider each request individually and cannot approve any leave retrospectively. If you wish to apply for a leave of absence, please complete a form which is available in our office or alternatively, click here to download a leave of absence form. 

If the school does not authorise a leave of absence and you take your child out of school, or keep your child off longer than was agreed, the absence will be unauthorised and the local authority may issue a penalty notice. The fine is £60 per parent per child if paid within 21 days, rising to £120 if paid between 21 and 28 days. Non-payment may result in the case being referred for prosecution through the magistrate's court.
