At North Gosforth Academy, we strive for 100% attendance for all students. Every lesson counts and it is this commitment to learning that will have a positive effect on students' examinations and will improve their chances and choices in adult life.
Excellent attendance and punctuality prepare your child for the world of work and support the development of friendships and relationships.
We want your son/daughter to have the education and skills they need to live a happy and fulfilling life. There is the expectation that all students will attend the academy when it is in session.
Absence from the academy will have an effect on your child's progress. We firmly believe that working in partnership with parents/carers is the best way to improve outcomes for our students. The responsibility for deciding if an absence is authorised (within the law) or unauthorised lies with the academy.
We monitor attendance and punctuality closely and if your child is regularly absent or late, we may contact you to discuss how we can work together to improve the situation. In some cases, we may invite you into school for a meeting to discuss how we can best support you to improve your child’s punctuality.
If you are worried about your child’s attendance or punctuality, please contact us to discuss any issues you may be having.
