“Every Day in School Matters”
At William Hulme’s Grammar School, we believe that regular school attendance and punctuality are key to enabling young people to reach their full potential; academically, socially and emotionally.
We expect every student to achieve a minimum of 96% attendance which is no more than 6 days missed in a school year. Frequent absences or patterns of absence will be investigated by the school’s attendance team. We expect senior school students to be sat in their form room at 08:30 ready for the register to be taken at 08:35 everyday.
While 90% attendance may seem good it actually accounts for half a day missed every week, this adds up to four weeks worth of lessons missed in one year! Research suggests that 17 missed school days a year will result in one GCSE grade drop in achievement.
