Attendance and Absence


We have high ambitions for you and attendance is one of the most critical factors in achieving success. We expect you to attend all lessons (online and on-site) and this will be closely monitored.

FE Students

Throughout the year we send regular updates to your parents. You and your parents also have daily access to detailed attendance data through your Individual Learning Plan.

HE Students

You will be notified if we have concerns about your attendance and you will have access to support and guidance to get you back on track. Failure to engage in this and improve your attendance may result in disciplinary action and ultimately withdrawal from your course.

Head to your Student Dashboard to look at your current attendance % this will also show your current timetable.

Term Dates can be found on the Loughborough College website

You can find the Loughborough College Attendance and Engagement Policy on the college website.


If you are not able to attend college for whatever reason, it is essential that you log your absence on your Individual Learning Plan. Make sure you give examples e.g. family emergency or sickness as you may be asked to provide evidence.

This automatically feeds through to the registers a recorded absence (R).

Failure to notify us will result in an unauthorised absence (A). This will affect any financial support you may receive e.g. Student Support Fund. Any unauthorised absences will also result in disciplinary action being taken.


If you will not be attending college when you are due to attend, you must report this through your ILPFollow this link for guidance on how to report an absence.
