Outstanding attendance is a key contributor to helping students achieve their full potential.
Under the Education Act (1996), parents or carers are required to ensure that their child attends the Academy regularly. Our target is 100% attendance for all of our students.
We expect parents/carers not to arrange holidays during term time, however, should this be necessary a request must be put in writing to the Principal.
We also ask, that as far as possible, any doctors or dental appointments are made out of Academy hours.
If your son or daughter is ill or absence is unavoidable we ask you to contact the Academy between 8.00 am and 9.00 am on the first morning of your son or daughter's absence.
The Academy can be contacted by phone
If we are unaware of your son or daughter's absence, this will trigger an automated truancy call to your telephone.
At Sirius we reward excellent attendance and punctuality. For those students who achieve 100% attendance they are entered for a weekly and end of term prize draw. A variety of other competitions will take place throughout the academic year.
