Absence Procedures

Absence from school

All absences from school need a written or verbal explanation, so please send in a brief note or ring school if your child/ren have been absent.  If your child/ren are absent from school and no phone call has been received giving any explanation the absence is classified 'unauthorised' under school attendance regulations.


Absence requests in term-time

Regulations state the Headteacher "may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances". It’s up to the Headteacher how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted. Please complete and return to school either by hand or via email at

Mrs Ellison will then consider your application and respond in due course.



If your child is unwell at school we will contact the people in order of preference, as specified on our computer system for your child and request for them to be collected.  Please make sure you inform the school of any telephone/mobile changes so we can always contact someone if necessary.


If your child is unwell before school and going to be absent, please phone the school absence line on 01254 249892 and state the reason why your child is off, before 9:15am. The office staff will contact via text if no absence is reported.
