ATTENDANCE

Can I keep my child off for a non-medical reason? What constitutes authorised or unauthorised absence?

Requests for absence can be made โ€“ a form can be downloaded from the school website or collected from the school office. Absence can only be granted in exceptional circumstances โ€“ a decision made by the Headteacher.

Can my child attend a medical appointment in school hours?

We always encourage you to make routine appointments, such as dental check-ups in school holidays or out of hours. We recognise that this is more difficult for non-routine appointments. In this case, a medical appointment form can be downloaded from our website or a form can be collected from the main entrance.

At what time can I phone to tell the office my child is unwell?

We have a dedicated answer phone for this, so you can call at any time of day or night. Call the main school number (01904 798453) and listen to the options given to record an absence.
