Update on Year 11 Attendance

Update on Year 11 Attendance

Dear Parents and Carers, 

 

I would like to confirm the arrangements regarding Year 11 attendance for the rest of the school year. In line with the guidance to schools from the Department for Education, all students are expected to attend school for the duration of term 5 regardless of whether they have completed all the GCSE assessments.  
In term 6, Year 11 students will be offered a combination of face to face and remote learning which is focused on students’ next steps in education and life beyond school. Details of which have already been sent to all parents and carers via parent mail. A copy of the Year 11 programme can be found here. 
The guidance from the local authority and the DfE is that any students not attending school during term 5 will be recorded as an unauthorised absence. 
I hope this clears up any uncertainty that may have existed about attendance requirements. 

 

Best wishes 
Mr Crowe
