Excellent attendance is a high priority at Witton Park Academy. At the start of each new half-term, every pupil has a personal target of 97%. We reward all pupils who have a good attendance or have improved their attendance. This year our rewards have ranged from badges and chocolate treats to regular prize raffles for Mall Gift Vouchers.

We do appreciate that there are usually good reasons to account for absence, such as illness, but good attendance is vital in order that your child achieves his or her potential. We are extremely grateful for the parental support provided in encouraging good attendance in our School.

We advise that holidays should not be taken in School term time. Any request for a holiday in term time needs to be made in writing to the Headteacher and permission is only granted in exceptional circumstances. Requests must be made on this form:

If you have any concerns or worries with regard to your child’s attendance at Witton Park, or require additional support in maintaining good attendance please contact our Educational Welfare Officers Ryan Woods and Alysha Tanner who will be only too happy to assist you.
