Attendance and Punctuality

If a student is absent, parents should contact the Academy by 9am on the first day of absence; the dedicated telephone number is 01303 842424 or email address Secondary.Attendance@folkestoneacademy.com. A telephone call is expected each day a student is absent unless previously advised.

For absences that extend to a week (5 school days) or more, some form of medical evidence is required; this can be in the form of a Doctor’s/walk-in centre note, copy prescription, sight of prescribed medication or completed Academy form.
