Our minimum expectation for attendance is 95%. If your child's attendance falls below this level, we may refer to our Education Welfare Officer.
It is the policy of King's Academy Prospect, in line with the guidance from the Department for Education not to authorise any leave (loss of learning) during term time. However, if you wish to request an Exceptional Leave of Absence (Loss of Learning) you need to read the following advice and complete the form below. It is the policy of both the school and local authority to issue FPN (Fixed Penalty Notices) for unauthorised absence.
This form must be completed prior to the requested Exceptional Leave of Absence (Loss of Learning). Each request will be considered individually and we will take into account:
- The student’s previous attendance history
- The time of year
- Attendance and punctuality in the current academic year
- The student’s current academic progress and attainment
- The nature of the request and if any previous requests have been made
If your child is absent from school due to illness, or any other reason, our Attendance Officer must be informed before 8.30am. Medical Evidence will be required for absences to be authorised.
Attendance Officer: Mrs K Turner
