Attendance & Punctuality

Full attendance is vital if students are to fulfill their potential, make progress in school subjects and take advantage of the educational opportunities available at Weatherhead.

All students must be in school by 8.30am. From 8am – 8.25am we run a breakfast club in the dining hall which offers a free slice of toast and a tea or hot chocolate. All students are welcome.


Reporting an absence

Telephone 0151 631 4410 on the first and every subsequent day of absence.


Appointments during the school day

Students attending a clinic, hospital or dental appointment during the school day, must bring an official appointment card or note from their parent and take it to the Student Services Office who will issue an Authorised Absence Pass. Wherever possible such appointments should be made out of school hours.
