Reporting your child’s absence

 

If your child is absent please telephone the school by 8.30am on 01732 843446 and leave the following information on the answer machine:

 

  • Your child’s name

  • Class

  • Specific reason for absence

  • Expected date of return. Please telephone each morning until your child returns to school.

     

    On your child's return to school, please confirm the reason for absence with a letter. Good attendance helps your child to achieve their very best.

     

    If your child is absent and we have not been informed the school office will contact you by telephone or text. Please respond as soon as possible so we know that your child is safe.

     

    If your child has a medical appointment, please provide a copy of the appointment letter in advance. If this is not possible, please inform us in writing of the appointment.

     

    If you wish to request to take your child out of school during term time you must complete a request form, which can be downloaded here or collected from the school reception. Please ensure that you have read the school’s Attendance Policy before completing the form.
