At Oldbury Academy we expect good attendance and punctuality from our students. Absence from school can impact on attainment, emotional health and well-being and can also be a risk to the safeguarding of students.
We consider an attendance rate of at least 95% to be good. Persistent Absence (PA) is defined as an attendance rate of 90% or below. Pupils who have missed more than 50% of school sessions are severely absent (SA).
Adults at home are responsible for making sure that their children attend school regularly and we will work with parents to support them with this responsibility.
In choosing Oldbury Academy parents agree to support and help us maintain the following high standards of uniform throughout their child’s time at the school.
