Absence and Attendance

We place high value on regular attendance and its importance for your child's learning.


Absence Reporting Procedure
If you are unsure about whether your child is well enough to attend school, please contact the school office who will be able to provide you with advice.


If your child becomes ill whilst in school, we have qualified first aiders in school who will monitor them and contact you if they need to be sent home.

If your child  is not attending school:
Please call 01924 350094 to leave a message on our Absence Line as soon as possible, but before 9am.


When leaving a message please make sure that you include the following information:

  • Full name and tutor group of your child
  • Detailed reason for absence 
  • The best number to contact you on, in case we need to clarify any details

You may receive a text message if your child is absent from school. If you do, please contact the school office to provide updated information regarding your child's absence.

Please note that it is vital that you contact school EVERY day that your child is off school.

For more information regarding attendance please see the Trust Attendance Policy on the Policies page.
