Reporting Pupil Absence

If your child is unwell, in the first instance please telephone the School on 01759 302395 Option 1 (pupil absence).  This must be followed up by a note, or by using the tear- out slips in the back of your child’s Planner – please hand these into Reception.

For pre-planned absences, again, tear-out slips are available in the back of your child’s Planner. Completed slips or notes should be handed in to Reception, where the Attendance Officer will enter the information on the attendance system. Alternatively you can telephone the absence line in advance where a note will be made on our system.

It is essential that absences are notified promptly as only then are we able to authorise them. The absences will remain unauthorised without them, affecting your child’s attendance record. 

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
