Daily Absence Reporting

If a student is absent, parents/carers must contact the Academy each day with a reason and/or update:

tel: 01724 710368 ext. 1

At The Axholme Academy we firmly believe that regular school attendance and punctuality are fundamental to enable our students to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them and maximise their achievements. Every child has the right to be educated and the Academy, in partnership with parents/carers, has a duty to ensure maximum levels of attendance.
