Attendance Policy

At Swindon Academy, we expect all students to attend regularly in order to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them. Regular school attendance and educational attainment are inextricably linked.  We recognise that regular attendance at school is essential for good learning and continual progress and ensures that students get the best possible outcomes from their period in compulsory education. All school staff will work with students and their families to ensure each student attends school regularly and punctually.  

We expect all of our students to aspire to 100% attendance and appreciate the full support of parents and carers in encouraging this. The minimum level of attendance for this school is 94% and parents will be kept updated regularly about progress to this level. The school has targets to improve attendance and students play an important part in meeting these targets. Please click on the following link to read the full
