The Staff and Governors of The William Gladstone Academy believe that regular school attendance is essential if children are to achieve their full potential.
We believe that regular school attendance is the key to enabling children to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community.
We will work with families to identify the reasons for poor attendance and try to resolve any difficulties.
We do home visits if your child is not in school and we have not been told why, we do this to safeguard all of the family and to ensure that everyone is safe.
Please inform us as soon as possible if you wish your child to leave early for a medical appointment or family emergency. We would expect him/her to be collected from school in these circumstances.
Rachel Moffoot is our Attendance Officer and can be contacted through school.
