Our Attendance Ambition

Everyday Counts; 97% is your child's target

At Leeds East Academy, we are focused on attendance as we believe that good attendance is central to students’ academic achievement and personal development.

One of the most important things that our students can do to achieve academic success is also one of the most basic: go to school every day. Missing out on lessons leaves pupils vulnerable to falling behind.

In fact, research by Leeds City Council has shown that children’s attendance records may be the biggest factor influencing their academic success; pupils with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

Good attendance habits begin at home with the right messages from parents and carers, who are by far the most important influences on their child’s lives and learning. They also have a legal duty and responsibility to ensure their child is educated.

We are passionate about the attendance of every child in our school because we feel it is our personal responsibility to adequately equip every child with the key skills to be successful in their adult life.

Let’s work together to ensure your child makes good levels of progress so they can reach their full potential.
