Attendance

 

We believe that high attendance is vital for our students to get the most from their experience at Notre Dame.

For Years 7-11, a breakdown of all attendance recorded during AM (08:50-09:05) and PM (13:20-13:25) registrations is provided.  Click here for a breakdown of the Attendance Codes used in the school registers.

If you log onto MCAS you can see your child's current attendance.

  • 95% = Our Whole School Target
  • 90% = Average of 1/2 day a week absent
  • 90% = Persistent Absence, Attendance Officer alerted
  • 80% = Average of 1 day a week absent

 

For Sixth Form students (Years 12-13), a breakdown of lesson by lesson absences and lates is provided.  This provides a more accurate picture of attendance for these students as attendance at AM & PM registration is not always required.

Absence

If your child is absent, please ring our main number 01603 611 431 every day of their absence.  Follow the options to leave a recorded message.  When your child returns, they are required to bring in a letter to provide written evidence of their absence.
