Our Vision:

"To create a purposeful educational environment where children of all abilities can learn and thrive"

At North View Academy, we believe that


  • Pupils need to attend school every day so that they can take full adavantage of the educational opportunities available.
  • Poor attendance rates and persistent lateness undermines the educational process and leads to educational disadvantage.
  • Children who attend school every day make better progress and have better life chances.


Parents / Carers are responsible for ensuring that their child:


  • Attends school every day
  • Arrives at school on time, in uniform and in a condition to learn.
  • Are absent only for reasons that can be authorised (please see attendace policy)
  • Inform the school of the reason for any absence and the likely return date , before 9:30am on the first day of absence. By note, personal contact or telephone call.
  • Inform the school office or class teacher prior to a medical and/or dental appointment, a copy of the appointment letter will need to be seen. If possible please always try to arrange these for out of school hours.
