Attendance for Learning at Copleston High School

In order to get the most from their time at Copleston High School, students must have excellent attendance.

Any absence will result in a loss of learning and work will be very hard to catch up on.

How is high attendance rewarded at Copleston High School?

Copleston High School recognises the importance of high attendance and we reward students on a weekly basis for 100% and 95-99% attendance through the automatic issuing of electronic reward points.  These reward points help contribute to a student’s overall total.

Students who achieve 100% attendance for the term are rewarded by the Headteacher through the termly Headteacher’s Achievement Assemblies.  Students gaining 100% attendance for the whole year are recognised by the Headteacher and the School Governors.

Can I take a holiday in term time?

The school now has a policy of not allowing holidays in term time, unless there are exceptional circumstances surrounding a situation.  Where an application is made for a holiday, this will be considered by the Headteacher and will only be authorised in rare exceptional cases.

Where can I get more information on attendance at Copleston High School?

The attendance policy is available for students and parents on the policies page.
