The 100% Attendance Club

Beginning in March 2020, Bishop Young will be celebrating the students with a faultless attendance record by establishing the 100% Attendance Club. This prestigious club is for those who maintain 100% attendance throughout the academic year. Those students will be given a host of rewards and experiences in recognition of the perseverance and resilience it takes to maintain 100% attendance to school.

Students within the 100% Club will be issued with a lapel badge to wear with pride and show their club membership. Students will be able to use this badge to access the rewards and experiences put on for club members.

The 100% Club will all have the opportunity to win the following prizes and experiences:

Exceptional Circumstances

We do recognise that there are sometimes entirely unavoidable reasons for your child to miss school. Students who have found themselves in these circumstances may have had:

If you have advanced warning of these circumstances, please be in touch with the academy so we can make arrangements to authorise your child’s absence. You will be asked to complete the Exceptional Circumstances Absence Form  and return it to school.

If you believe your child’s previous absences meet these criteria, please complete the Exceptional Circumstances Absence Form and return it to your child’s Cathedral Leader. As an academy we will then review each case individually and, where appropriate, allow your child to remain as part of the 100% Attendance Club.
