Attendance and Reporting

Sixth Form Attendance

Registration

All sixth formers should be in tutor rooms between 8.45am and 8.55am each day. Student attendance is important as we have a full programme of activities for the registration period and give out notices. If students are marked absent with no reason given from registration and not subsequently marked present for a lesson, a call will be made to parents/ carers.

Students are expected to attend all lessons. We expect as near to 100% attendance as possible for registration and lessons.

If a student knows about an absence in advance then they must complete a ‘Request for Absence’ form which is available from Hayley or Carolyn in the Oak Hub.

For any unexpected absence a parent must inform the school of his/her absence before 9am. Please telephone 01487 833701, then choose the option of sixth form (Oak) absences and leave a clear message to include name, form and reason for absence or email Hayley at SVAOakHouse@Sawtryva.org  If students are in school and need to leave due to illness etc, they must report to the medical room.

A sixth form student of Sawtry Village Academy will be expected to:

  • Attend registration every morning
  • Attend all lessons
  • Be punctual at all times
  • Attend assemblies
  • Attend all guidance interviews
  • Ask a parent/ carer to telephone the sixth form absence line, before 9am, of any unexpected absence leaving a clear message to include name, form and reason for absence.
  • Provide a Medical Certificate for absences of more than 7 consecutive school days

It is important to understand that if your attendance falls below 90% this may affect progress in examination subjects. This level of absence may trigger a meeting with parents and could result in you being required to pay for examination entries.
