Illness and Absence

If your child is absent from school, you are requested to contact the school office before 9.15am by either email or phone call.

If the administration team have not heard from you by early morning they will contact you to establish why your child is not in school.

If a child is late, he or she must be signed in by a parent or carer. Persistent lateness has a negative impact on learning and we support families to ensure all children arrive in good time.

Should you need to request absence from school for any reasons, including medical appointments, please complete the form below and pass to the office.
