The school day is outlined above. We have high expectations for attendance and punctuality as we prepare our young people for a successful and prosperous future. To monitor this we use the SIMS registering system.
Good attendance is key to success in our school.All pupils will have their own attendance target and will monitor this weekly in their personal profile. Pupils whose attendance falls below 95% will have their attendance monitored by members of staff.
Although we recognise that it is not always possible for parents to take their holidays during holiday periods we believe that any disruption to the amount of time pupils are out of the school has a detrimental affect on their education. We follow DFE guidelines and as such advise parents that it is not acceptable to take holidays during term-time.
Please ensure that routine medical appointments are made out of school hours or during holidays, where possible. Please advise Malet Lambert in advance of appointments either by telephone or in writing. We will require proof of all medical appointments.
Please ensure that requests for leave of absence from the school are made well in advance using the Application Form for Leave in Exceptional Circumstances which should be submitted to the headteacher well in advance. Holiday leave will not be granted. Requests will be considered on an individual basis in accordance with school policy.
Please note that Leave of Absence will NOT be granted during public examinations or timetabled events. Leave taken without prior permission from the headteacher will be treated as unauthorised and legal action will be taken by the school. This may be in the form of the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice or Court action.
Pupils should arrive at Malet Lambert promptly by 8:40 AM.
Registration/Assembly - 8:45 AM
Pupils must ensure that they are punctual to all lessons throughout the day as poor punctuality to lessons can result in a truancy mark. Registers are taken at the start of each teaching period through the day.
Pupils arriving late to the academy MUST sign in at the Attendance Office.
If your child is absent then you MUST telephone the school by 8:30 AM on each day of absence to let us know why your child is not attending school. It is possible to leave an answerphone message.
A letter MUST be provided on your child’s return explaining the reason for absence.
Absences of 5 days or more require medical proof. This can be in the form of a specific letter from the GP/Hospital which must state the nature of the condition and the length of time the pupil must refrain from attending Malet Lambert. Please make the school aware of any on-going medical issues.
