Harris Academy Sutton regards attendance as vital importance in order for all students to maximise their potential and therefore make progress each and every day they are at the Academy. Students are expected to arrive at registration and lessons on time to ensure they have every opportunity to achieve but also in order to gain the independent organisation skills that will equip our students in later life. Henceforth, there is clear evidence from research that poor levels of attendance and punctuality have a negative impact on student achievement:
parents not notifying the school of any absence, then the parents will be contacted by phone in the first instance, and then an email and letter thereafter. In the case of requesting absences (i.e. a funeral), as the parent/carer you are expected to fill in a request form which will be reviewed by the principal for approval.
Harris Academy Sutton regularly reward high attendance in order for all students to strive to achieve our Academy target of 98%.
