St. Leonard's CEP Academy

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it" Proverb 22:6

Attendance policy


St Leonard’s CEP Academy aims to maximise attendance and secure high levels of punctuality in order to ensure that all pupils have full access to their education. If allowed to remain unchecked persistent absence and lateness can significantly impact on a pupil’s progress and achievement. Our regular communication with parents play a vital role in ensuring that this is achieved.

The school has signed up to the Hastings Attendance Charter. This is a Hastings wide charter for promoting attendance for children and young people.


The charter is a collaborative approach to promote good attendance at school across Hastings.


School leaders and governors who have signed this Charter agree to work together to implement it.
