Coombe Sixth Form recognises the strong link between attainment and attendance. For all courses, full attendance must be maintained until the very end of the academic year.
Any absence must be accompanied by a note from home, please contact the campus as set out below.
All Sixth Form students are expected to attend school every day and register at 8.30am. We operate late detentions once a week after school for students who are late two or more times a week.
All students will register at 2.55pm unless they have no timetabled lesson in the afternoon and have chosen to leave school by 1.50pm and work at home.
If they have no timetabled session but have remained on site during the lunch break and period 5, they must attend registration.
Tutor time is a compulsory part of your time at Coombe, and failure to attend this will be used when deciding on whether a student may remain at Coombe Sixth Form.
Attendance for every student is expected to be above 95%.
Any absence must be accompanied by a note from home and, if attendance falls to 96% or below, we will expect your parents to come into school and discuss this with school staff. If attendance remains a problem, decisions will need to be made about whether a student should remain at Coombe.
During the tutor time, students will follow a clearly and well-planned Active Tutorial Programme each day. They will also have a fortnightly assembly with a member of the Sixth Form Team or SLT.
For all courses, full attendance must be maintained until the very end of the academic year. Failure to adhere to this could lead to your place in Year 13 being removed.
Please report your child's absence by 8:00am for that day and for everyday of the student's absence.
If pupils are not in school, the preferred and easiest way to report an absence is via our attendance inbox by emailing [email protected]
If phoning the school to report an absence, parents must telephone 020 8329 2587.
Parents must record
their child's name, spelling them both
the reason for their absence.
Please report your child's absence by 8:20am for that day and for everyday of the student's absence.
A form needs to be filled in for each student and for each day of absence.
