Westbourne Academy is part of the family of Academy Transformation Trust academies.

Our mission is to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities for all our pupils, and the communities in which they live.

We believe that every child matters and deserves a first class education. We believe everyone has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured.

Our extensive family of primary and secondary academies are based in the Midlands, East of England and South East.

Attendance

Regular attendance is really important, as children who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve good results and reach their full potential, and this helps give them the best possible start in life.

Research shows us that children who are frequently absent from school, without a good reason, are 12 times more likely to leave school without any qualifications, are more likely to break the law, and are more likely to be victims of crime.
 

Westbourne Academy strongly encourages all parents and carers to:

  • Send your children to school on time every day
  • Take holidays only during school holidays
  • Always phone if your child is too ill to go to school (telephone number 01473 466145)
  • If your child wakes up feeling unwell give appropriate medication and see if they are well enough to return to school later on – avoid full days of absence
  • If you arrange medical or dental appointments, insist on either out-of-hours appointments or beginning/end of day, so your child can be in school for at least part of the day
  • Talk to academy staff if you or your child have problems/worries that relate to school

In the event of your child’s sudden absence from school, please let us know by calling our Attendance office direct on 01473 466 145. Please call before 8.30am where possible stating your child’s full name, form and reason for absence.
