If your child is unable to attend school as a result of illness, parents or carers should telephone the School Office and leave a message on 01761 452644 before 9.30 am. This is essential to help us monitor the safe arrival of all our pupils.
If your child arrives after the register has been taken, please make sure you come to the School Office and ensure your child is signed in and lunch requirement registered.
We have to keep a record of all authorised and unauthorised absences; an unauthorised absence is when you have not been given permission for your child to be absent from school. Absence from school can seriously disrupt a child’s continuity of learning. Not only do they miss the teaching provided, they are less well prepared for lessons on their return.
Parents should contact the School Office if they wish to request an absence or download the form here.
