Hessle High School
The proper place for you to be on a school day is at school. If you are not in school then you must have a justifiable reason and a message should be sent to school explaining your absence. The school attendance number is 01482 648604 (Option 2).
Guidelines on absence and copying up work missed:
Normally you will be expected to copy up work missed, as a result of absence from school, within a period of two weeks following your return. It is your responsibility to ensure this is done.
In exceptional cases of long-term absence, the teacher may photocopy the work missed in order to avoid excessive pressure on you. In examination classes when you have missed assessment preparation, as a result of illness, the teacher will provide you with an opportunity to gain the teaching and guidance needed. However, the need for you to be responsible for attending these extra sessions cannot be overstated, to avoid the possibility of missing valuable marks and perhaps not achieving your full potential.
Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013. These amendments make it clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time. Further information is available on the school website (www.thehessleacademy.co.uk) for you and your parents.
It is extremely important that a student has good attendance at school to achieve their full potential. The table below shows the impact of good attendance at GCSE for our Year 11 students in 2018. The school target for attendance is 96%.
|Attendance %||Progress 8|
|Less than 90||-0.78|
Progress 8 score shows how much progress a student has made from Year 7-Year 11. A score of +1 means a student has achieved one grade higher in each qualification than similar students nationally. A score of -1 means they achieve one grade lower.
