Attendance – Post 16 (KS5)
It is vital that all students aim to have excellent attendance at college. Research shows that even a few days of absence can have a negative impact on students’ Post 16 grades and performance. Beauchamp operates the following attendance grid when reporting to parents:
|98% and above||excellent|
|90-93.9%||cause for concern|
The college operates the Truancy Call System to notify parents if their child has failed to turn up for school. Parents can help by notifying us in advance about planned absences and arrange medical or dental appointments outside the school day where possible. It would also be useful if parents could contact the college by 10am to let us know if their son/daughter is going to be absent. The college day begins at 8.35am and all students are expected to be in college by this time regardless of the distance they may have to travel.
Beauchamp rewards students with excellent attendance through a termly prize draw to win iTunes vouchers and an end of year educational and social trip to Drayton Manor and Tamworth Snowdome .
