Absence and Attendance
Reporting a Sickness Absence
Please ensure that you notify the school office by no later than 9am if your child will be absent from school due to sickness.
If school has not been notified of an absence by the time pupils arrive at school, then a call will be made home for an explanation of why the pupil is absent.
Reporting Leave for a Medical Appointment
If your child needs to attend a medical appointment during school hours, please notify school as far in advance as possible and supply a copy of the appointment form for your child’s records.
Requesting a Pupil Exceptional Leave of Absence
If a leave of absence is requested, other than for medical appointments, this leave request must be made in writing using a Leave of Absence Request Form obtainable from the school office or downloaded here: Exceptional Circumstances Leave of Absence Request Form. Exceptional circumstances must exist in order for the request to be approved.
Late Arrival at School
Pupils that arrive late with no prior explanation (ie. phone call / medical appointment) will be recorded with a late mark. Please ensure that you notify the school office if you are running late.
