Summary of Key Procedures

Attendance

Attendance at College is one of the most important factors that impacts on achievement. Our Sixth Form Code of Conduct expects students to have an attendance of above 96% across the year. Students are expected to attend all timetabled lessons, timetabled learning support sessions in the Learning Resource Centre, morning Tutorials and also timetabled PSHEe lessons to support them with their aspirations after Sixth Form.

When reporting an absence please use the following guidelines:

Planned Absence

Please complete the form below and submit it to Mrs Hollyman or Miss Reed three days before an absence. These will be agreed by Mr Evason or Ms White.

Further details on what constitutes as a planed absence can be found in our handbook.

Unplanned Absence

Any absence owing to illness must be reported by 10.00am on the day of the absence by the student or their parent/carer. This can be done by contacting Mrs Hollyman via email or ringing the main College phone number.

It is a student’s responsibility to then email subject staff to apologise for their absence and request work to complete for the following lesson. It is expected that students will have a conversation with their teachers on their return to College to ensure all homework and missed classwork is collected and acted upon for an agreed deadline.
