School Absence

If your child is unwell or unable to attend school, it is important that you notify us of this as early as possible each morning please.

If you call the absence line you will be prompted regarding what details we need from you, but if you text or email please can we ask that you tell us:

  • Your child’s name
  • Your child’s form group
  • The reason for the absence
  • Your relationship to the child…..This will be needed each day of absence please.

Text messages will be sent to the parents/carers of students who are not in school, and we haven’t heard from, at 10.00am. Please do respond to this message so that we are clear about all absences and reasons for the absence.

Just to remind you that if your child is unwell whilst they are in school, they should attend our first aid room or student reception. We will then liaise with you and if necessary, make arrangements for students to be leave school. Students should not call home and leave school without our knowledge

Thank you so much, in advance, for your support.
