Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

Attendance

Attendance and punctuality is monitored at Easterside Academy. We employ Education Welfare Ltd to do this for us.

Roz Pickersgill is in school every Wednesday morning. Parents/Carers are encouraged to come in and speak with her or any member of our school attendance team: Mrs Loughran, Miss Sharp and Mrs Carter, regarding any attendance issues.

 

Absence

If your child is going to be absent from school please let us know the reason, by telephoning the school on the first day of absence.

Education Welfare Ltd will send letters to parents/carers who fail to notify the school regarding the reason for absence or whose child’s absence becomes unacceptable. The school reports on absence at consultation time and in the end of year report to parents/carers. The Head Teacher reports fortnightly on your child’s class attendance.

Certificates and awards

Certificates are awarded for 100% attendance each term and an ‘Easterside Experience’ is arranged for those children in order for them to celebrate. Weekly attendance and punctuation awards are given out on Friday’s at the ‘Celebration Assembly’. Please inform the school if your child is reluctant to come to school, so problems can be sorted. The school is supported by two Pupil and Parent Support Advisors and an Educational Welfare Officer, who help to resolve attendance issues.

 

Holidays authorisation

Governors and the Head Teacher can no longer authorise holidays in term time except in exceptional circumstances. This must be done through completing the leave of absence form in the main office.

  • 95.2% is the National Attendance Figure.
  • A child is classed as a persistent absentee when absence falls to a level of 90% or below.

There is a correlation between absence and underachievement
