Back to Key Information

At Babington we work hard to support all of our students to reach/exceed our attendance target of 96%+.  It is very clear that Babington students who attend well (96%+) achieve better outcomes.  In 2019, students with attendance of 96%+ made significantly better progress and attained significantly better grades than those students who had lower attendance.

We want all students to thrive at Babington.  Our curriculum ensures that students learn a broad selection of subjects in depth in order to allow them to open doors and grasp hold of their hopes and dreams for the future. We want this for every student, good attendance is fundamental in supporting students to achieve this.

Students who have good attendance will:

  • do better in lessons
  • find it easier to make progress
  • receive rewards for good attendance
  • feel happier about school

If your child is absent regularly they may:

  • find work harder
  • not feel part of the class 
  • find it hard to make friends
  • not make the most of the opportunities provided by the college

We understand that when we work in partnership with parents and students we get the best results therefore if you would like additional support please contact our attendance team.
