If your child is absent through sickness or any unavoidable cause, it is essential that you inform the school. You can do this by either:
- telephoning the school and leaving a message on the absence line
- delivering a note to the school office in person
If a phone call has not been received or a note dropped off, the office will call you on the first day of absence for monitoring purposes.
Please do not use email to notify the school of absence.
Leave of absence requests
Holidays must not be taken during term time. The Headteacher however has discretionary powers to grant leave of absence in exceptional circumstances.
Leave of absence requested for educational purposes will be granted e.g. Music exams. Absence request forms are available from the school office.
The school must collect and report details of absences by law and so these are monitored closely. Lateness is also monitored.
