We expect all students to be on site for 8:35am

Form Time starts at 8:40am. All students arriving after this time will receive a lunch time detention.

The attendance register will be taken during form time at 8.40am and close at 9.10am. For the afternoon period registration will start at 12.30pm and close at 1.00pm.

Students are late and will receive an L mark on their register if they arrive after 8.40am for AM registration and after 12.30pm for PM registration they will receive a 15-minute detention for poor punctuality.

Students who arrive late after the close of registers (AM – 9.10am / PM 1.00pm) will receive a U code on their register and that session will be classed as an unauthorised absence affecting the students school attendance and also resulting in a 20-minute detention. 

For example: – if a student arrives at 8:41 am they will receive a late mark and a 15min detention at lunch. If a student arrives at 9:11am, they will receive a ‘U’ code on the register. This will count as an unauthorised absence for the morning session.  

The same applies if a student arrives late for PM registration, 12:31pm they will receive a late mark and a 15 mins after school same day detention. If they arrive at 12:41 they will receive a ‘U Code’ on the register and the afternoon session will count as an unauthorised absence, again resulting in a 15-minute detention.


Additional registers will also be taken at the start of each lesson during the day. Registers will mark whether every student is:

  • Present
  • Not in lesson, but working elsewhere in the academy
  • Attending an approved off-site educational activity
  • Absent

The academy building is open for students for breakfast club at 8:00am on school days.

If a student arrives after 9am, they must sign in at reception and enter the reason they are late through the electronic sign in system.
