Attendance & Punctuality
Attendance has a very high profile at Ashcroft Technology Academy. We expect all students to achieve a minimum of 98% attendance per academic year and we count on parents to support us in our aims.
Research shows that failing to attend school regularly can have a major impact on a young person’s education, their future and their life chances. Data shows a strong correlation between good attendance and a young person’s attainment. Statistical evidence shows that young people who are absent from school are more likely to be unemployed after leaving school.
Punctuality also has a very high profile at Ashcroft Technology Academy. Research shows that those students who have good punctuality are better prepared for their day and are higher achievers. It helps the student to identify the importance of education and develops a sense of responsibility for him/her and towards others. Punctuality at the Academy sets the standard students will need to maintain throughout their working lives.
