Students who arrive late to the Academy

As an Academy we strongly believe in preparing all of our students for the next step in their lives; be it college, university or an apprentice placement.  As such it is vital that we embed essential life skills as part of our day-to-day ethos.  The importance of excellent attendance, punctuality and being properly attired for a day’s work is very much at the forefront of Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich.

The Academy currently has outstanding attendance at around 97%.  This is 3% higher than the national average and is testament to our boys’ thirst for learning and desire to come into school each and every day.

Generally the punctuality of the students is also excellent, and exceeds national averages.  However, as an Academy we are always striving for better.  As such there will be a change to the policy on the sanction for being late to the Academy coming into effect from Monday the 23 February 2015.

If a student arrives at the Academy after 08:20  he will he held in the canteen and spoken to by a member of the Senior Leadership Team.  You will receive a text from the Academy informing you that your son/ward has arrived late to the Academy.  This is also your notification that he will be sitting a 40minute detention the same afternoon in room G.02.

If your son fails to attend this detention he will serve a 2 hour detention on Friday.

I hope that this change to the policy will encourage all of our students to appreciate the importance of excellent punctuality.

The Academy continues to recognise and reward the students who show exemplary attendance and punctuality with termly prizes including Kindle Fire tablets, £50 JD Sports vouchers and £25 Nando vouchers.

Furthermore it is essential that our students are correctly attired in full Academy uniform ready for a full day’s work.  As such students have the opportunity to collect spare uniform from student services between 07:45 and 08:15.  If a student does not have his full uniform after 08:15 he will also serve a 40 minute detention in room G.02.  You will receive a phone call informing you of his detention.

It is essential that the Academy has the most up to date contact numbers for you, including mobile phone numbers.  If you have changed your number recently, please contact the Academy so we can update your details.

If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the Academy.
