If your child will be absent from school due to illness or any other reason, the school office must be informed by 8.45am at the latest. We have a specific Pupil Absence option on our telephone answering system (option 1) which you can call at any time, ie. if it is more convenient to call before 7.45am and the office is unattended, or you can press Option 3 and speak to office staff directly.
If your child has an appointment, of any type, you will need to complete an absence request form in advance. These can be found on our school website or paper copies from office staff.
If your child will not be at school for morning registration, but will arrive later, the office staff must be advised no later than 9.15am of your child’s lunch choice for that day. It may not be possible to order school lunches after this time.
Absences for holidays within term time will not be authorised. Absences for exceptional circumstances are at the discretion of the Headteacher and may necessitate a formal meeting prior to approval. All absences must be requested in advance, using the absence request form available on our website or from office staff.
If the nature of illness is vomiting or diarrhoea, we unfortunately have to impose a 48 hour rule. The child should not come back to school until 48 hours has passed from the last bout of illness. This is to help prevent the spread of this type of virus.
