The reporting of a student's absence procedure is as follows:

Parent/carers should report absent children by 8.00am to 0161 232 1639. Choose option 1 for Student Services, where you will either speak with a member of staff or be asked to leave a message on the answerphone. Please remember to leave your child’s s full name, form group and year group. Or send a message on the MyEd Parent App.

Alternatively, parents can email into office@manchester-academy.org to report a child’s absence. 

Any child still absent by 9.00am and where no contact has been received from parent/carer, will receive a phone call home from the Attendance and Safeguarding team.

Please encourage your child to attend school every day: just 17 days absence from school a year could mean a drop in GCSE grades in all subjects.

What is the academy's Attendance Policy?

Regular school attendance is essential if children are to achieve their full potential.
