We expect the highest standards of attendance and punctuality.

Warberry Academy recognises the importance of excellent attendance and punctuality so that pupils can maximise their achievement in school and can be well-prepared for the demands of the next stage of their education. Research evidence and national statistics link good attendance to the achievement of academic and personal development.

Attendance and punctuality also reflect pupil and parent commitment to achievement and to our school mission ‘To transform children’s lives’.

We encourage all pupils to work towards 100% attendance and set a minimum attendance target of 98% per year.  Excellent attendance is celebrated weekly, half termly, termly and end of year to individuals and classes.

We encourage regular attendance by:

  • providing a caring and welcoming learning environment and learning that is such fun that children will not want to miss it
  • responding promptly to a child’s or parent’s concerns about the academy or other pupils
  • marking registers accurately and punctually during morning and afternoon registration
  • publishing and displaying attendance statistics
  • celebrating good and improved attendance
  • monitoring pupils, informing parents/carers in writing of irregular attendance, arranging meetings with them if necessary
