  • Any student who has 100% attendance in any week will be entered for a prize draw. 15 students a week will be picked from a hat and will each receive a £5 voucher (prize money available each week is £75)


  • There will be 100 FREE breakfasts available to students who arrive in school up to 8.30 am. There will be a choice of hot breakfast foods (toast, bacon/sausage butty, tea, coffee or juice)

Parents will be informed by text when a student has achieved 100% and has been entered for the draw.

Students have also been designing posters to promote attendance and punctuality and could be in with a chance of winning a share of up to £50.


  • Students who have attendance of less than 97% will be put on an attendance plan with their tutor
  • Students who have attendance that is 90% or below will be referred to the Education and Welfare Officer


  • Students who have 2 or more lates in one week will result in a detention. The detention will be 10 minutes at break.
  • If the break-time detention is missed it will be 20 minutes at lunchtime.
  • If the lunchtime detention is missed it will be 30 minutes after school.
  • If the after school detention is missed it will be an Internal Exclusion the following day and one hour after school.

A list of students who are in detention will be published each day on the door of the detention room to inform staff and students. Parents will be informed by text.
