My first week in College has passed very quickly; I am grateful to you all, particularly students who have stopped me and taken the time to tell me about your College experience (largely positive!)
Congratulations to the learners who continue to attend College over 95% of the time; over 300 of you have not missed any lessons this year!
We are considering ways in which we can reward good attendance and as a start, each week, all learners attending more than 95% of lessons will be entered into a draw. There will be two prizes of £25 high street vouchers. This will start from tomorrow with winners announced on Tuesday of each week.
Obviously, there are those whose attendance is unsatisfactory and it is with regret I have to inform you that several learners were excluded last week for poor attendance. Failure to attend class will result in disciplinary action and then exclusion. Missing lessons is NOT an option. Various performance measures, including attendance, will be used to decide whether or not students will be allowed to return to Gateway next year.
