The Ninestiles Trust is committed to providing a full, efficient and fulfilling educational experience to all of our students. We believe that, if students are to benefit from the education that we offer, punctuality and good attendance is crucial. As a Trust, we will organise and do all we can to ensure maximum attendance for all students. Any problems that impede punctuality and regular attendance will be identified and addressed as speedily as possible. It is the policy of our Trust to celebrate achievement, and attendance is a crucial factor to a productive and successful school career. Therefore;
The Ninestiles Trust will actively promote and encourage 100 per cent attendance for all our students with a minimum expectation 0f 97%.
The Ninestiles Trust will give high priority to conveying to parents and students the importance of regular and punctual attendance through regular updates. We recognise that parents have a vital role to play and there is a need to establish strong home-school links and communication systems that can be utilised whenever there is concern about attendance.
If there are problems which affect a student’s attendance we will investigate, identify and strive in partnership with parents and students to resolve those problems as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will adopt a clearly focused approach aimed at returning the student to full attendance at all times.
