Absence Procedure

If your child cannot attend school, parents are required to contact the school no later than 9.00am. 

You can inform us of your child's absence via the absence text facility on ParentMail or by calling the school office and pressing Option 1. 

Wherever possible, we would ask that medical appointments be made outside of the school day, although we understand that this is not always possible. If your child does need to attend a medical appointment, i.e. dentist, doctors, hospital etc., you may be asked to provide evidence of this appointment. This can be in the form of a compliment slip from the surgery/appointment card/text/email, giving your child’s name and date of appointment, bearing an official signature and stamp.
