Attendance is outstanding at Accrington Academy!
At Accrington Academy we take attendance extremely seriously and have implemented the ‘AIA Project’ (Attendance Improvement at Accrington Academy). We are all working together to ensure that students achieve their maximum academic potential as it is well established that attendance is directly linked to academic results.
Pupils say that they like coming to school. Accordingly, they behave well and attend regularly.
Ofsted 2018  
It is very important that your child attends school regularly, a poor attendance can seriously affect your child’s education. 97% and above is ideal, 94-96.9% is a cause for concern, 90-93.9% means your child is at risk of underachievement, 80-89.9% indicates that there is a severe risk of underachievement and anything less than this could be of extreme concern.

Parents should advise the Academy by telephone on the first day and each concurrent day of absence by ringing 01254 3014300, option 2 and clearly stating your child’s name and reason for absence. 

Please ensure that any absences are reported before 8:40am wherever possible. At around 10:30am a text will be sent home to any students who have an unexplained absence for the morning. 

Failure to phone school or reply to this text may result in a home visit from our Home/School Liaison Officer Mrs Dodgeon and Attendance Manager Mrs Wissett. The welfare of our students is of paramount importance and it is essential that we can account for their whereabouts wherever possible.    

* Please ensure that we have accurate contact details in case of any emergency, especially if you change your mobile.
For more information on leave of absence requests, please read our attendance policy.
