Excellent attendance and punctuality at school is important to allow a child to reach their full potential. Through regular attendance and good punctuality your child will be able to:
- Enjoy learning
- Experience new things
- Access all available opportunities
- Meet their learning targets
- Develop social skills with peers
Children who are persistently absent are not able to achieve their full potential due to missed learning opportunities.
It is the parent/carer’s responsibility to notify us if your child is absent from school and a reason must be provided. Please contact school on 01325 248153 first thing on a morning to report the absence. If we do not hear from you, we will contact you to find out the reason for the absence. We may also make home visits to the homes of absent children.

At Springfield Academy, we understand the importance of good school attendance and the difference it can make in the progress and outcomes for children. We also, however, understand sometimes holidays are more expensive during school holiday time.
We’ve partnered up with Independent Travel Agent, Clare Crossley, to source some amazing holiday deals, exclusively for Springfield families during the school holidays.
