If you are absent from College or are going to be late, you or your parent/guardian can login to Cedar and report the absence directly.

If you have to sign out during the College day come to the Student Advice Hub or Main Reception before you go. You are expected to attend ALL lessons on your timetable and any extra support sessions that have been arranged for you. You are also expected to be on time. Teachers and tutors will record all absence and lateness, unexplained absence or persistent lateness will be followed up by your Achievement Tutor and if necessary by Senior Tutors and Senior Managers. Your attendance and punctuality will be included on your progress checks and may be used on references. You can check your attendance and marks through Cedar.
