Absence

Please let us know by 9.30am if it is necessary to keep your child away from school.  

If your child develops symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting you should keep them off school until they have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.

If your child is late the school should be notified by 9.30am.  

If it is necessary to take a child for an appointment during school hours, they must be collected from the school by a parent.  

No child may leave school premises unaccompanied.  

Parents must always first come to the school office in order to complete the exit record.

A child’s attendance is monitored and a record of absences is maintained. If the level of absence causes concern, the Headteacher will communicate with parents to discuss the matter.  

A Local Authority Attendance Officer might be asked to communicate with parents if there is a persistent or increasing level or absence.
