The attendance target for every student in the Olympus Academy Trust is 96%. Excellent attendance is intrinsically linked to academic achievement and progress. Students who have regular absence, patterns of unauthorised absence, broken weeks of attendance and high levels of absence for minor illness are unlikely to achieve their academic potential. The Olympus Academy Trust prioritises the monitoring, support and robust action needed to secure high levels of attendance and works in close partnership with the Local Authority to place matters before the court in circumstances where parents/carers do not ensure that their child attends school regularly and punctually. The following Attendance Phases are a guide for students and parents on the steps that the school will take to support the regular attendance of students at school. At every stage of our Attendance Phases we welcome the opportunity to engage with parents and carers. Early intervention and student support sits at the heart of our approach to raising levels of student attendance. Below are some documents relating to Attendance.
For students suffering with sickness and/or diarrhoea we would request that students remain absent from school for 48 hours following the last episode. For any other illnesses/infections please follow your doctors advice, however, we would ask to be advised of any infectious illnesses, such as chicken pox etc.
