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.

Attendance and Punctuality

At HPAPL 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. 

Punctuality

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.

Attendance

Parents and carers have a legal responsibility to make sure their children attend school regularly. There is also 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. For detailed information please see our Attendance Policy.

We do 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 school office. Please see the request for leave procedure below.

If you are having difficulty or need some support with attendance or punctuality, our Home School Liaison Officer, is available to meet you by appointment.

We celebrate good attendance in a number of ways at the academy. We give out certificates to children with 100% attendance over a half term period. We also award classes with certificates at our achievement assemblies held each week.

Requesting Leave Procedure

If you wish to request leave from school during term time, you must follow the following procedure:

1.         Request Form L1, from the main office, at least 14 working days before the start of the first day of leave that you wish to take.

2.         Return Form L1, to the office, within 48 hours. A member of the administration team will give you an appointment to meet the Home School Liaison Officer (HSLO). This meeting will take place within 2 days of you returning Form L1.

3.         You will meet with The HSLO, to discuss the request made in Form L1 and to look at your child’s attendance history. In this meeting you will need to show evidence such as travel tickets and other supporting documentation to support your request.

4.         Once the HSLO has seen your documentation you will be notified as to whether your request for leave is authorised or not authorised. You will be issued with Form L1A (green form), which approves the application or Form L1NA (pink form) that does not approve the application, 5 days after the date of the request for leave meeting. This will be issued 5 working days before the date of the requested absence. You will be required to sign this form and a copy will be kept for our records.

Please understand that if an absence request is unauthorised and you proceed to take a holiday in term time, the Attendance Service will be notified and a Penalty Notice will be issued.  A Penalty Notice is a fine of £60 and it is issued to each parent for each child taken out of school. This fine increases to £120 if not paid within the first 28 days.  If a penalty is not paid, it may result in legal action.
