Absence Requests: Years 7-11

If you would like to take your child out of school during term for any reason other than a medical appointment you must complete the Pupil Absence Form and return it to e.samson@arkbolingbrokeacademy.org or leave it at Reception at least one week before the intended leave.

You will be notified if your request has been authorised. Any absence that is not authorised will be recorded as unauthorised.

Absence Requests: Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13 only)

As per the student/family/school agreement signed at beginning of the year, agreed attendance is 98% or above. 

Our school day begins promptly at 8.55am. If a student is not in their first lesson by the time the register is taken at 8.55am, they are marked as "N". If they arrive after this time, they are marked as "L". Both marks directly affect student's overall attendance and punctuality data which we use to inform our UCAS school reference.

More importantly, however, if a student misses civitas, they miss valuable pastoral care, key notices for the week, guest speakers and 1:1 meetings. This is vital for their success and wellbeing.

If you are going to be absent from school for any reason, please follow the steps below:

a) log in to your BBA student office.com account to complete the form below

b) you will receive an email from pupil services as to whether this has been authorised or not

c) you must submit evidence otherwise the absence is likely to be unauthorised
