Pupils need to attend the academy regularly and punctually if they are to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them by law. Millbay Academy recognises its responsibilities to ensure students are in school and on time and therefore have access to learning for the maximum number of days and hours.

Children who are absent from school frequently develop large gaps in their learning which will impact on their progress and their ability to meet age related learning expectations.

Millbay Academy has high expectations for all students with regard to attendance. Pupils should aim for 100% attendance and achieve a minimum of 97% attendance.
