Attendance

Attendance and Punctuality; the pre-cursors to success

Attendance and Absences


Good attendance and punctuality are natural pre-cursors to success and  achievement in school, and also an essential employability characteristic.

With this in mind, students at Altrincham College are expected to maintain excellent attendance and punctuality throughout their time at Altrincham College.

"Our overall attendance was 94.9% for 2014/15, comparing favourably against the national statistic of 94.8%, and this is a trend we fully intend to maintain."

In the rare event your child is unable to attend school through illness or due to a medical appointment, we ask that you please contact the school directly to notify us of the absence. 

When your son/daughter returns to school, please also ensure a letter or note is written in the planner; giving a reason for the absence, which should be handed to the Form Teacher.
