Absence

The Maltings College works hard to ensure that students find learning enjoyable and stimulating. We understand that if students are to learn effectively, then the college must be a place that they look forward to coming to. Below you can find some information regarding what you need to do if you are going to be absent.

Sickness absence

High attendance has a proven link to educational outcomes – every lesson really does count and maintaining 100% attendance will ensure students achieve their potential.

Students are expected to arrive on time, every day. Students should only be absent in exceptional and unavoidable circumstances. All absences must be reported to our attendance team by emailing absence@maltingscollege.co.uk or by calling 01422 300 024.

Students must advise college before 8.00am if they expect to be absent for an unavoidable reason.
