It has been so fun interacting with all our parents, especially the Year 6 parents, this week on Twitter! We think it's a great way to keep up to date with what's going on at the academy day to day. We hope you'll spread the word to other parents and keep getting in touch!

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Student Welfare

Student Welfare

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the welfare of your own son / daughter or please contact our Designated Child Protection Officer, Miss Alison Berry, via the office on 020 8808 3231.

The Academy has a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare of all of our pupils. This is also stated in our section called Safeguarding. Please click on the links below to view these policies. The list  includes our policy that sets out expectations of  behaviour. We call this our Culture for Learning Policy and is very important since it means everyone feels safe and can learn in lessons at other times of the day. It also clearly sets our the Philip Lane Golden Rules which were devised with our pupils and staff.

Attendance and punctuality

At Philip Lane our aim is to ensure that the children receive the most from their education. Good attendance and punctuality are given high priority because they support motivation, enthusiasm, good progress and learning. Please click below to see our attendance policy for more information. At Philip Lane we monitor attendance and punctuality very closely because:

  • Punctuality is important to establish positive habits as children develop, grow and move on to their next stage. Late arrival in the morning can also  be detrimental to your child’s education and result in disruption for their peers. It can lead to missed explanations, introductions to lessons and can cause you child the distress and embarrassment of being late.
  • Parents and carers have a legal responsibility to make sure their children attend school regularly. At Philip Lane we monitor our pupils' attendance very closely to ensure our pupils well being, learning and progress
  • There is  a statutory requirement to publish statistics about attendance rates. At the Academy we set an annual target to improve and check our progress towards this.

Holidays in term time

We would not expect you to take your child out of the Academy for family holidays or special leave during term time.  When considering the timing of your holiday, please remember the following:

  • We will not authorise any holidays during term time, like most other schools.
  • A two week holiday during term time will mean that your child misses a range of curriculum activities. They will also miss 10 Literacy and 10 mathematics lessons.
  • There are approximately 175 non-school days each year for holidays, cultural experiences and family time.

Application for special leave in exceptional circumstances may be considered by the Principal, forms are available from the academy office. 

We celebrate good attendance in a number of ways at the academy. We have a dedicated display board to update and share class information and to mention those children with 100% attendance over a half term period. We also award classes with certificates at our achievement assemblies held each week.
