Ormiston NEW Academy

Excellence through Endeavour

Academy day

Attendance and Punctuality

The Academy places great importance on excellent attendance and punctuality in order for students to achieve their full potential and get the most out of academy life. We work hard with our students and their families to support and improve attendance and punctuality of all our students.

For students who may be experiencing difficulties in attending school fully, we have a range of support measures. These may include accessing support for the individual student in school, or support for the wider family from external agencies with whom we work in partnership. Please contact the Student Welfare Officer who will be able to offer further advice and assistance.
