Child Absence


If your child is unwell or has a medical appointment and will not be attending school, you need to inform us as soon as possible by contacting Miss V Brand on 01702 468047 Option 1 - Attendance Line by 9.30am that day.  If no one answers the call, please leave us a message.

If we do not receive a call from you by 9.30am you could receive a visit from our local Truancy Officers accompanied by Police Officers who work the local area on a regular basis.

If your child has a medical appointment, we do request that you supply proof of the appointment.

If your child is absent and has attended the doctors and been given a prescription for medication, please supply a copy of the prescription or bring in the medication in order for us to take a copy of the label on the medicine bottle or pack. Thank you.
