At Barton Hill Academy, we strive to ensure that all pupils arrive on time and attend as much as possible.

We strongly believe this helps to install a good routine both for their secondary education and their future work life. To support this we ask all parents and carers to:

  • Make sure that your child arrives and is collected on time
  • Make sure that your child attends the Academy regularly and that you contact the Academy by 9:30am on EVERY day of absence
    • Tel: 01803 317930
    • Text: 07860 041819

IMPORTANT: A fault has been identified on our Absence Text number (07860 041819). You are unable to send a direct text to this number. However, if you receive a text from us, you will be able to reply to it. We are working to sort this out as soon as possible and will update you accordingly. In the meantime, please report absences by ringing 01803 317930 or emailing and providing your child's name and the reason for absence.

Each week in assembly we celebrate attendance. The class with the highest attendance gets to look after Attendance Pup for the week and the children who have 100% attendance are entered into a prize draw with one winner from each class chosen to win £1.
