Attendance and Punctuality

We expect every student to attend regularly and on time. Students are expected to be at school by 8:53am at the latest. From this time, students will be admitted and held to be processed for being late to school. Tutor time begins at 8:55am. If a student is not in the tutor room at this time, they will be marked as late.

If for any reason a student is unable to attend, the school should be informed by the parent using the message function in the MyEd app on each day of absence providing evidence where necessary, for example medical appointments. For further information on the school’s attendance procedures and policy, please contact the school.

It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to report student absence on EACH DAY OF ABSENCE by 8:00am. Please use ONE of the following methods to report absence

1. By using the free My Ed app (our preference)

2. By phoning the absence line on 020 8357 5607

3. By emailing
