Attendance and Punctuality

At Glengormley High School, we expect pupils to have a high standard of attendance and punctuality throughout the school year. Attendance and punctuality are extremely important in order to prepare pupils for employment. Employers are often influenced by exam grades and attendance and punctuality records when making decisions about their prospective employees. Parents should be aware that:

  • Pupils need to bring a note to explain their absence on the day they return to school.
  • Phone calls are appreciated to explain an absence however; written evidence also needs to be provided.
