September 2013 - Year 11 Prom 2014



September 2013


Dear Parent/Carer

The Corby Business Academy Prom is a celebration of student achievements over their time at the Academy. The purpose of this letter is to inform both you and the students. The requirements in order to attend. The criteria has been agreed with Senior Management and has been fully communicated to the Prom Committee on a weekly basis.

The criteria is as follows:

Students must achieve at least 95% attendance by 23rd May 2014 (end of Term 5). Please note authorised absences are NOT counted in this percentage, unless there is a medical reason to which you will have evidence for.  To monitor attendance your child’s tutor has access to e-portal where students can check their progress within tutor times.

In addition to the required attendance, students are also monitored by their behaviour. Students who are issued with more than one 'Isolation' or one full 'exclusion' day/s will also be excluded from attending the Prom automatically regardless of attendance.

Both conditions have taken effect from Wednesday 4th September 2013 to Friday 23rd May 2014. Students who are unsuccessful will be informed by myself at the start of Term 6. Those who have reached the required criteria will be listed at Student Reception and only those individuals will be able to purchase their tickets.

The date and time which the prom will be held will be confirmed at the start of next term, along with the cost of ticket. The Prom is normally held within 2 weeks of the last exam therefore please ensure holidays are booked after this time to avoid disappointment.

The Prom Committee are currently working extremely hard to ensure that this years' Prom, is a success and are currently planning fund raising activities to assist in the cost of the event. If any parent/carer wishing to donate, it will be greatly received.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any concerns by email; or by contacting the Academy on the number above.

Yours faithfully
