Attendance and Punctuality
At Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey, we are committed to providing a full and efficient education to all and we encourage our students to strive for excellence. Students must attend school regularly to reach their full educational potential. Research shows that students whose attendance falls below 96% are unlikely to achieve 8 GCSEs at grades A*-C including Maths and English. This commitment to education and making progress is proven to improve life chances and increases both choices and opportunities upon finishing education.
Good and regular attendance – 96% and above, creates good habits and attitudes that will be needed later in life, in the world of independent study and later when at work. We expect every student’s attendance to be above 96% throughout the academic year. Good attendance will be both acknowledged and rewarded consistently through assemblies, certificates, letters home and reward trips. All absence from the Academy will be challenged.
