Absence Reporting

It is important that you telephone the school on the first day of your child’s absence – if not we will telephone or text you; please contact us before 09:30. If we are unable to contact you, we will notify the police that your child is considered an absent or missing person. We have an answering machine for messages out of hours. The school’s telephone number is 023 92 463 663. Alternatively you can send a text to the school office on 07786 207779.

If your child has an appointment during the school day please let the school office know either by telephone or send us a note. Please note that to ensure the safety of children who need to leave school early for such appointments an adult needs to sign the child out from the school office – we will not permit the child to leave school alone.

Absence Requests

The most recent government guidance only permits schools to grant discretionary authorised leave in exceptional circumstances; exceptional is defined as a unique, one-off situation such as a family crisis, a bereavement etc.

If you wish to request leave of absence during term time, please ask at the school office for the relevant form or click here.  Our Attendance Policy is linked below:
