Absence Line: 01323 728989

If your child cannot attend school (for whatever reason) please telephone the school by 9.30am every day of absence.

When your child has had 3 separate periods of absence, we will notify you that we will require medical evidence for any further periods of absence due to illness.  Medical evidence may be in the form of a medical appointment letter from the hospital, a doctor’s appointment card signed by the doctor’s receptionist or a photocopy or photograph of prescribed medication.

We expect any family holidays to be taken during school holiday times, not during term time.  Absence from school has an impact on both the academic and social aspects of children’s learning.   If an absence is required due to exceptional circumstances, please fill in a withdrawal from learning form which you may collect from the school office,  preferably 14 days before the period of absence.
