Attendance and Holidays

There are clear links between high levels of attendance and high levels of attainment. Sawtry Village Academy promotes and celebrates school attendance and expects all students to strive for 100% attendance.

If your child is absent from school please contact the college before 9am.

Holidays and Authorised Exceptional Absence from School

Family holidays are no longer allowed to be taken during school term time.  Families who take their children out of school for holidays without permission may be fined.  However, there are situations where the Principal may use discretion to authorise the absence in exceptional circumstances.  If you feel that such a holiday meets these criteria, please write to or email the Principal.
