Attendance & Progress

Attendance Banner

It is an expectation of Skegness Grammar School that students arrive here punctually every day and properly equipped to carry out their studies each day.

Attendance forms an integral part of our pastoral structure.

There is a strong link between attendance and academic achievements. If a student does not attend they cannot get the best from their time at our school.

We have a number of strategies in place to support students to maintain their highest attendance percentage possible.

90% attendance = 1⁄2 day missed every week Over a school year this is 4 weeks –100 lessons lost. Over 5 years at 90% this is half a year of education. 17 missed school days means that you could drop a whole GCSE grade in all subjects.

The greater the attendance the greater the achievement.

It is therefore an expectation of Skegness Grammar School that students arrive punctually every day and are properly equipped to carry out their studies. All students are required to be on site by 8.38am at the latest and ready for line up.

Attendance forms an integral part of our pastoral structure. Daily Form time with personal tutors enables the students to start the day in a prepared manner.

Our Attendance Officer monitors students’ attendance and is available to discuss attendance issues if these should arise. If any student is absent the Attendance Officer must be informed on the morning of the absence with the reason for the absence. The phone number for reporting absences is 01754 610000.

We have a number of strategies in place to encourage students to maintain their highest attendance percentage possible.

We are aiming for 100% attendance for all students this year.
