Reporting an Absence

If your child is sick or is going to be late there are a number of ways to let the school know:

  1. Telephone (01568 613147) before 08.50am- there is an answerphone if staff are on another call
  2. Email
  3. Send a message using the ‘Contact Us’ page of the website

Please DO NOT ask escorts to pass on messages due to safeguarding regulations.

If you know of an absence in advance such as a scheduled hospital appointment then please contact the school office or message the class team via the diary, and you will be sent a form to complete which should be accompanied by the appointment letter. Alternatively you can print the form by clicking here.

Please note that all holiday requests are subject to the conditions of government guidance, and will be considered by governors prior to being authorised. Holidays during term time should be avoided if at all possible, and are only considered if attendance is over 95%.
