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.

Absence Reporting

Student Absence

If your child is absent from school please call as soon as possible on the first day of absence and advise us why your child cannot attend(Tel: 01473 466145).  This will ensure that the reason for the absence is known promptly.   Please remember to call each and every day of the absence to keep us informed and allow us to confidently alert you if your child is not in school when they should be.

At Westbourne we use an automatic communication system that will contact you directly if your child is marked absent.  It is therefore essential to let us know if your home, mobile or work’s telephone number(s) change(s).  It is also important that we hold current email addresses for contacts as this goes a long way to improving home/school communication.

Leave of Absence requests

Requests for holidays in Term time can only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. You must complete an Leave of Absence Request Form (students can collect these from Student Services) before any holidays are booked. This form should be submitted up to 14 days prior to the absence. No more than 10 days may be requested in any one school year. Students will be expected to catch up with work missed on their return.
