Attendance

To report a pupil absence please call T: 01223 712623 (Attendance Office) or email attendance@sawstonvc.org

Please find below details of the college's attendance policy and the procedure for notifying the college of absence.

The college is firmly committed to full attendance by all pupils.  Absence during term-time as a result of term-time holidays interrupts continuity of teaching and learning, disrupts the educational progress of individual children and creates disruption in schools. Research shows that pupil attendance of less that 95% can impact on pupil attainment by as much as a grade or level. Sawston Village College aims to minimise the amount of time lost to term-time holidays through a policy that discourages parents from arranging family holidays during term time and allows authorisation of absence for such holidays only in exceptional circumstances.

For specific data on your child's attendance, and other matters, please use Go4Schools, accessible via Online Services for Parents.
