Attendance Policy

Attendance is the keystone to securing outstanding outcomes for each and every student at Moor End Academy. Students who demonstrate resilience in attendance benefit from better results and are also rewarded with unique opportunities.

Research going back many years has consistently told us, not surprisingly, that parents are the most important people in their children’s lives, and that support for their children’s learning and development is crucial.

Let’s work together and ensure our young people achieve and succeed.

Reporting Absence

Before reporting an absence for illness, please read through the guidelines on the page below:

Is my child too ill for school? 

Mobile: 07624 806879 (Text only)
Telephone: 01484 222230
Email: absence@edu.moorend.org
Fax: 01484 222233
In cases of absence, parents must inform the Academy using one of the methods above, on the first day of a student’s absence. Parents should still write a note in the planner to the form teacher explaining the student’s absence when they return to the Academy. If the absence is prolonged you may be required to produce a doctor’s note.

We will need to know when the student is expected to return to the Academy.

The Attendance Officer will follow up any unexplained absences, you may receive either a text, a voice message or a phone call.
