Attendance and Monitoring


Attendance and performance 

Newcastle Sixth Form College practices a robust attendance monitoring procedure. This includes using eTrackr to track attendance, using the eTrackr SMS service to contact students and maintaining contact with parents/carers.

Reporting an absence

If a student is ill and unable to come to college, the absence should be reported before 9.00am on the day of their absence to ensure that the absence is correctly recorded on registers.

The number to call to report an absence is 0191 272 1001 option 2.




Newcastle Sixth Form College uses eTrackr, a web based student electronic individual learning plan system, to record a variety of information about students and their learning journey's at Newcastle Sixth Form College.



As a parent/guardian of a young person at Newcastle Sixth Form College, you also have access to eTrackr, which allows you to:

  • Access names and contact emails for teaching staff and academic tutors.
  • Allows you to look at weekly attendance (overall and by subject) as well as authorised absence and punctuality records.
  • View overall performance via a traffic light system (this includes attendance and predicted grades).
  • Compare predicted grades against the ALPS target grade.
  • View tutorial and subject specific comments added at regular intervals throughout the year.


How does eTrackr work?

We have put together a user guide for parents/carers who would like to use eTrackr.
