Absences

Illness

If your child is ill, please call the school on 01423 866207 as soon as possible and preferably before 9am. There is an answer machine if no-one is there to take your call.

Alternatively, text the school on 07786207779, giving the reason why your child is absent.

On return to school, please send a note to the teacher or office clarifying the reason for the absence.

Holidays

From September 2013 new government regulation no longer allows schools to authorise leave of absence except in "exceptional circumstances".  We will therefore no longer be able to authorise holidays during term time. 

For your information the link to the regulations is http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/pupilsupport/behaviour/attendance/a00223868/regulations-amendments. 

If there are exceptional circumstances which mean that you need to take your son or daughter out of school, please make a request in writing explaining the reason (or complete the leave of absence form).
