ABSENCE DUE TO ILLNESS:
You should contact school by 10am on the first day of absence. This can be done either by:
- Phoning our 24hr absence line on 01455 220279 option 1 and leaving a message (we will also require a written note when your child returns to school)
- Emailing email@example.com
If we do not hear from you we will try to contact you either by phone or text, in line with our First Day Calling policy.
Absences of more than 3 days or those that coincide with the start / end of a term may require medical proof in order for
them to be authorised.
ABSENCE DUE TO MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS:
Wherever possible we would ask for routine / non-emergency appointments to be made for outside of school hours.
If this is not possible please contact the school office to inform them in advance if you need to either collect your child
early or of your child will be late. In these situations please could we also ask that you bring your child's appointment card into
the main office to enable us to authorise the absence.
