Absence & Attendance

If your child is absent from school you are required to contact the school as early as possible. Please then, complete the form below and submit.

We ask parents to keep these to a minimum and to send an explanatory note on the child’s return in all cases.   A phone call to school before 9.15am on each day a child is absent informing school of the reason for a child’s absence is required.

Please note that legally teachers are only able to give authorised absence marks for certain eventualities such as illness and not for non-essential absence such as shopping etc.
