What should I do if a student is going to be absent?

Attendance is a key component to succeed and reach a students full potential whilst studying with the College. All courses have been designed so that students acquire knowledge, information and experience, in classroom or workshop environments, so attending all classes is vital.

There is significant academic research which shows that attendance directly affects the grades that learners achieve, therefore Windsor Forest Group expects all students to achieve 94% attendance during one academic year. Students should not arrange routine doctor or dentist appointments or driving lessons when they should be attending classes, and holidays must not be taken in term time.

Please encourage students to attend all lessons, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Once the absence has been submitted, an email message will be sent to the relevant subject area to notify them of the absence.

Please ensure this is completed by 8am (at the latest) on the day of absence, and each day of absence thereafter.
