Good attendance is essential for a student to progress well in school. Parents should, therefore, avoid any plans, which mean a child misses lessons. Please consider carefully before you agree to a routine doctor’s or dental appointment in school time.
Where absence from school is due to illness or some other reason that could not have been anticipated please let the school know the reason for absence by telephone between 8am and 10am on the first day of absence. Direct Dial – 01606 333313. Where no explanation has been received by this time, we will attempt to contact you by phone to establish the reason for the absence. Where an illness causes prolonged absence, please contact the school to discuss work that might be appropriate.
