What are our aims?

At UAH we strongly believe that all students benefit from regular school attendance both in terms of their academic and social growth.  Attending every day is the best way to achieve, succeed and get the most out of all the Academy has to offer.

Working with parents and carers, our aim is to minimise the amount of time lost due to absence in order to maximise the educational potential of every pupil.

As an Academy, we have set the threshold of 97% or above as an indicator of excellent attendance.

What do I do if I know my child is going to be absent?

Each day, if we have not heard from a parent/carer, then we have to believe that they have been sent to school. Therefore, if you know that your child is absent we ask you to contact the school before 8.40am either by phone on 01406 423042 or by emailing the Academy at
