Year 11 Attendance During Exams

As our Year 11s start their formal examination period, we just wanted to remind you that school attendance is still statutory nationally for a few more weeks. Our teaching staff are leading focussed revision sessions for students in school and are still teaching Y11 classes formally when they do not have exams. These last few revision lessons in the approach to their final exams can make a big difference to their grades and schools no longer have the authority to authorise absence to revise from home during this period.

A child remains of compulsory school age in the eyes of the law until the last Friday in June in the school year that they turn 16, so full attendance, be that for an exam or a revision session, is expected during that time and is a requirement of all schools in England. 

Thank you for your support with this statutory requirement and please do continue to follow normal reporting absence procedures over the examination period.
