Attendance

Research commissioned by the Department for Education shows missing school for even a day can mean a child is less likely to achieve good grades, which can have a damaging effect on their life chances.  At Greenpark Academy our aim is to work with parents to ensure that all our pupils receive the most from their education and reach their full potential.

Children must be in school every day by 8.40am. To ease congestion at the school gate, we have a drop-off window from 8.30am-8.40am. If you arrive after this time, please bring your child in via the main office. You will be asked the reason for being late.

The school day ends at 3pm, to ease congestion at the school gate, we have a drop-off window from 3.00pm-3.10pm.

If your child cannot attend school for any reason you must advise the school office or your class teacher before 9.10am, on the day that they are absent.  You can call on 01553 772018 or inform us via your Pupil Asset parent app or Class Dojo.

If you do not contact the school office before 9.10am, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. You need to contact the school every day your child is absent.

If the school does not receive a request for leave, the Headteacher will be unable to consider your individual circumstances and the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.

For information about lunch and break times, please contact your class teacher on Class Dojo.
