Reporting Absence

Should you wish to report your child's absence, you need to contact the school office that morning, on: 01142 391078.

If you have any concerns with your child being off for multiple days due to illness or other unforseen circumstances, please ask to speak to Milly Anderson or Mr Azam, and they will be happy to discuss the situation with you.

We work very hard on keeping up our attendance percentage and so, by letting us know if your child is not well enough to attend school, will mean we can authorise it accordingly.

Thank you for letting us know your child will not be at school.

Holiday absences

For holidays in term time, parents/carers must ‘request’ leave and the Headteacher will consider the request and make a formal decision. Requests must be made 20 days in advance. The Headteacher may decide to authorise all, part or none of the leave request. A determining factor will be your child’s average attendance for the year and previous years. 

Children who do not return to school by the agreed date or take unauthorised leave may be at risk of
losing their place at the school.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
