Absence

We encourage parents not to keep children away from School unless absolutely necessary, because they miss essential teaching and it can be hard to catch up. We only authorise absence in exceptional circumstances.

If your child is ill or will be absent for a medical appointment, please telephone or email the School Office by 10am. Please give advance notice of medical appointments where possible. All absences must be reported direct to the School Office.


The School’s Attendance Policy can be found below, along with the Absence Request Form.  Please note that completed Absence Request Forms need to be handed in to the School office at least 2 weeks in advance of the requested absence date for consideration.
