Report Absence

What to do if your child is absent

If you know your child is going to be absent from school, you should:

  • - Where possible, ring school at the earliest opportunity to let them know
  • - Send a note to school explaining the reason for the absence(in advance if possible, eg: if your child has a doctors appointment)

Please note: School will contact parents if they are in any doubt as to the whereabouts of a child.

Absences can be reported in a number of ways

  • - Call school on: 01254 231279
  • - Email us: [email protected]
  • - Text us on: 07582 584 636


We reserve the right to issue Fixed Penalty Notices to parents of children who persistently have unauthorised absences, such as:

  • - parentally condoned absence without good reason, or failing to inform school about absences;
  • - holidays in term time;
  • - persistent late arrival at school.
