Attendance and Academic Expectations

At Buckswood St George's we understand that regular attendance at college is important for ensuring a student's educational success. Absenteeism not only affects the continuity of a student's education, causing extra effort on the part of teacher and student to catch up on missed work, but also risks underachievement for the student.


At St George’s we take attendance very seriously and have policies and produces in place to ensure that students are made aware that regular attendance at college is essential to their learning and development. We ensure that students maintain an attendance of at least 95% and establish procedures to raise overall attendance and punctuality and to acknowledge those students who attain 100% attendance each term.
