Thanks to the efforts of students, parents and staff, our attendance continues to rise, equally national standards and giving our students the best chance of achieving their full potential.

Attendance for last half term stood at 95% and represents an impressive rise of 1% on the previous half term, bringing ARK Kings' up to the national average. Significantly, school attendance has also improved since the start of the school year last autumn, when attendance is typically at its highest.

Attendance is a key priority for ARK Kings Academy. From day one, we teach our students that being on time and in school every day is vital to their learning and development. Throughout the year, students are rewarded for having excellent attendance, with special prizes for 100% attendance records. And where we detect concerns over a student's attendance, we intervene quickly, working closely with families to ensure students receive consistent messages from home and school.
