Attendance and Punctuality

Oasis Academy Wintringham has high standards with regards to student attendance and punctuality and expects 100%.  However, we do appreciate that all young people can fall ill from time to time and therefore our Academy target is 95% or above.

  • Every lesson matters – children who have time off often find it difficult to catch up and do well at school.
  • There is a strong link between the amount of absence and the progress/qualifications that a student achieves.
  • Research suggests that seventeen days (3.5 weeks) missed from school equates to a GCSE grade and that a child will not achieve their potential at school.
