If your child is absent, for whatever reason, please let the office know by phoning on the first day of absence and every day thereafter.
Notification of absence is very important so we ask you to comply with this request at all times. If your child is absent and we have not heard from you then we will try to contact you. If we are not given a reason for the absence within 14 days then the absence will be recorded as ‘unauthorised’.
Please ensure that your contact details are up to date so that we can contact you immediately if there is an emergency or if your child is ill.
Approval for days off must be obtained in advance through consultation with the headteacher. Please note that no more than 10 days leave of absence can be authorised in any school year and the reasons for the request must fall in line with the exceptional circumstances.
