Absence

Our attendance officer's name is Mrs Williams.

If your child is ill please phone Mrs Williams on 01736 788501 ext 151 by 9am.

For an ongoing illness you should phone in every other day; e.g. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We will attempt to contact parents of children who are not in school if we are unaware of the reason for the absence.

Research has proved that good attendance is important and is directly linked to pupils’ attainment, therefore holidays in term time are discouraged and will only be granted at the discretion of the Headteacher. Students with a low attendance record are unlikely to have holiday authorised.

Absences will be recorded as authorised if a parent /carer writes or telephones to explain them. Otherwise they will be recorded as unauthorised.
