Attendance and Appointments

Good attendance is vital if pupils are to achieve their full potential. Schools are required to keep an attendance register by law. We have a responsibility for the care and welfare of all pupils during the school day therefore need to know the whereabouts of absent pupils.

If a pupil is absent from school, parents should phone the school on the first day of absence. We operate a telephone answering service where you are able to leave a voice message for us.

When returning to school after an absence, the parent must give written reason for the time absent.

If a pupil needs to leave during the school day for an appointment please let us know beforehand by letter, phone or email.  To ensure best safety practices, if you are collecting your child during the school day please come to reception.

If a pupil becomes unwell during the day, parents will be contacted for them to collect their child.  Therefore it is essential that we have up to date day time contact numbers and emergency contact numbers for all pupils.
