Absences - A Guide for Parents

What do I do if....

...I know in advance that my child will be away from school, for example for a dental or doctor’s appointment? Please submit the appointment card/letter to Mr J Crossland - Attendance Manager or contact the school via email or telephone.

...I wish to take my child away on holiday during term time? The school tries to discourage students from taking any holidays during term time. In the event of a request for holiday leave, a form can be completed and given to Mr J Crossland, Attendance Manager. This has to be ratified by the Head Teacher, who has sole discretion in the matter.

...My son/daughter is away from school and no prior notice has been given? Please telephone the office during the morning to confirm the absence. If a call has not been received a text message will be sent and school will contact home during the first days absence.

Please help us to minimise this administrative work by explaining absence on the first morning of the first day, or if you know of a future absence then please advise your child's mentor or contact the school via email or telephone.
