If students are neatly dressed, it gives people a good impression of our school and of the individual students. Uniform at Carterton Community College is compulsory, and you are responsible for making sure that you come to school in full school uniform every day. We are committed to fairness and equality, hence our focus on ensuring that all our students follow our uniform expectations. For both boys and girls the school uniform is:

Good Attendance

This is a successful school and your child plays their part in making it so. We aim for an environment which enables and encourages all members of the community to reach out for excellence. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and your child should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. 

It is very important therefore that you make sure that your child attends regularly and our Attendance Policy sets out how together we will achieve this. 

It is important that children absent from school are able to continue their learning. We use lessons and learning material from the National Oak Academy. Please use the link provided and talk to your child’s tutor. 

ABSENCE REPORTING

To report your child’s absence please use the dedicated ParentHub App, email attendance@carterton.oxon.sch.uk or telephone 01993 841611(Option 1)
