It would appear that some members of the Y12 Physics AS course have gained an incorrect impression that attendance at lessons is no longer obligatory. As I explained in your most recent lesson following the final exam we are in the process of undertaking some practical skills lessons the outcome of which is to develop ESSENTIAL skills in Y12s moving into Y13. Can I make it absolutely clear that…
ATTENDANCE IN ALL LESSONS IS MANDATORY
…unless you have been given EXPRESS and PERSONAL permission to be absent from a lesson BY THE TEACHER OF THAT LESSON giving a reasonable amount of notice of your absence. Do not expect that we will pick up information of your absence from anywhere else and do not send someone with your excuses.
Absences will be rigorously followed up.
