Absence From School

If your child is absent from school for any reason, it is essential that you let us know the reason by telephone in the first instance, followed by written confirmation in the form of a short note on your child’s return to school. 

All non-emergency medical appointments should be made out of school time. No child will be allowed to leave school premises, during the school day, unless accompanied by a responsible adult. This rule is made to ensure your child’s safety.

The school has to keep a record of authorised and unauthorised absences.

Holidays should be taken when the school is closed in order to maintain your child’s educational progress.  Please see Attendance Policy and the attached letter: Leave of Absence.
