Attendance Policy

Smith’s Wood Sports College seeks to ensure that all its pupils receive a full-time education which maximises opportunities for each pupil to realise his/her true potential.

The College will strive to provide a welcoming, caring environment, whereby each member of the College community feels wanted and secure.

All College staff will work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends College regularly and punctually.

The College will establish an effective system of incentives and rewards, which acknowledges the efforts of pupils to improve their attendance and timekeeping, and will challenge the behaviour of those pupils and parents who give low priority to attendance and punctuality.

To meet these objectives we will establish an effective and efficient system of communication with pupils, parents and appropriate agencies to provide mutual information, advice and support.
