Absence reporting procedures

If your child is going to be absent due to illness or any other reason, please telephone the school before the start of the school day on 01993 891644 and leave a message on the absence reporting line giving full details regarding the illness or absence.  If your child’s illness lasts for more than one day, you must phone the school daily and inform us why your child is still absent.

If we have not heard from you by 9.30am the school will call you you to find out where your child is.

Please see the Attendance Policy on the Policy Page for more details of our approach to attendance.
