100% Attendance is vital for every student to achieve their full potential.

Under the Education Act (1996), parents and carers are required to ensure that their child attends the Academy regularly. Our target is 100% attendance for all of our students. We expect parents/carers not to arrange holidays during term time, should

you consider there to be exceptional circumstances, a request must be
put in writing to the Principal. Dentist and Doctor appointments should be arranged, as far as possible outside of the Academy day.

If your son or daughter is ill or absence is unavoidable we ask you to contact the Academy between 8.00 am and 9.00 am on the first morning of your son or daughter’s absence.

The Academy can be contacted by phone on (01482) 349 600.

If we are unaware of your son or daughter’s absence, this will trigger an automated truancy call to your telephone.

At Sirius Academy North we reward excellent attendance and punctuality. Students who achieve 100% attendance in any term, are entered into their house

prize draw at the end of each term. A variety of other attendance competitions will take place throughout the academic year.
