Absence from School

Reporting Absence

It is important that if your child is absent from school their absence is reported to the office as soon as possible, either by telephoning 01235 527600 or by email  If we have not had any contact to explain your child’s absence by 10.00am we will try to contact you to find out the reason.  When your child returns to school please send in written confirmation of the dates that they were absent and the reason.


Our classroom doors are closed for registration at 8.50am.  After this time children will need to come into school via the front office to be signed into the late book.

Medical Appointments

Where possible medical appointments should be made out of school hours, however if you child does have to attend an appointment during the school day, please inform the School Office and provide written confirmation of the appointment to the office.
