Absence

Absences from school should be reported before 9.30am either by using the absence reporting feature on ParentMail or by calling the school office on 01384 818845 and choosing option 1 to leave us a message. Please ensure that you detail the reason for your child's absence and when they are likely to return.
 
Certain medications can be administered to children who are well enough to attend. Please complete a request for school to administer medication form and return with the medicine to the school office. Children should not keep medication with them. Please see our Medical policy for more information.

This can be done by completing and returning to the Headteacher a ‘leave of absence’ form. Only in exceptional circumstances will the leave of absence will be authorised.
