If your child is not able to attend School for any reason you must contact the school as soon as possible giving reasons for the child’s absence. Phone the office on 01827 712372 or text or email Mrs Hughes on
We operate a system of first day contact, which means we will telephone or text you if your child is absent and we don’t know why. All absence without a valid reason is treated as unauthorised absence. Since September 2008 the law has stated that children who are absent from school should not be seen out and about during school hours, unless they are attending an appointment. If your child has an appointment during school hours for any reason, please try to bring them to school for the rest of the day. For example, a dental check-up does not mean your child should be absent for a whole day. Your child may miss vital parts of their education if they miss lessons. If children have sickness and diarrhoea they must be kept away from school for a minimum of 48 hours from the last symptom. Other medical conditions may have an exclusion time; you will be made aware of this when you contact us to report the absence.
Absence should be kept to a bare minimum; the Attendance Compliance Enforcement Team (ACE) monitors the children’s attendance and will take action if and when it is appropriate.
