Absence and Attendance

Regular school attendance is an important part of giving your child the best possible start in life and is important to your child’s future. 


What to do if your child is absent from school


Parents are responsible for informing the school of any absence. This must be on the first day of absence, ideally before 9:30am.


Please telephone the school (01903 202268 or 206127) and speak to a member of staff, or leave a message on the school’s answering service (option 1) stating the nature of the illness and when the child is expected to return to school.


If a child is absent and the school has not received any notification then the school’s attendance administrator will contact the parent/carer. Parents and carers need to keep us informed of continued absence. The school’s attendance administrator will contact the parents after a maximum of 3 days of absence if there has been no further contact from the parent.
