Reporting an Absence/Medical Appointment
If you wish to report your child absent, or inform us of an appointment, please telephone school office before 9.30 am if possible, on 01785 356772, or call into the School Office.
If we have not heard from you we will make contact with you as each absence needs to be accounted for. Absences will only be authorised if your child is away for a good reason, i.e. illness, medical appointments, or any other unavoidable cause. Please try and make medical appointments, outside of the school day.
If your child is off school unnecessarily or we are unaware of why the child is absent, this is classed as an unauthorised absence which will show on your child’s records.
If you are experiencing difficulties with your child attending school please contact Mrs Metcalfe on 01785 356776 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, parents/carers may contact the Education Welfare Worker from the County Council on 01785 276800.
