Wright Robinson College appointed as a new DfE Attendance Hub
We are delighted to announce that Wright Robinson College has been chosen to lead one of 18 new attendance hubs across England.
Attendance hubs are centres of excellence that help other schools to improve their own attendance rates by sharing their expertise, successful strategies and resources to support students having the best start in life.
Wright Robinson College was chosen as a lead school due to our consistent record of outstanding attendance and effective practice to address and support issues that could lead to poor attendance. Coupled with higher than average exam results and some of the best progress outcomes for students in the North West, the attendance hub is yet another accolade for our school.
Speaking about the new endeavour, attendance hub lead and Headteacher of Wright Robinson College, Martin Haworth, said:
"Becoming an attendance hub is recognition for the excellent work that the staff here at Wright Robinson complete on a daily basis to support positive attendance. This work has been sustained over many years, demonstrating the college’s commitment to promoting school attendance. It illustrates the strength of relationships that exist between the college, parents, carers and students, as well as highlighting our willingness to collaborate with external agencies. I firmly believe that academic success is key for social mobility and that positive school attendance is pivotal to academic success."
